Author's Note: Can twins sense each other?

My sister and I are only one year apart, not quite twins, but pretty close — in age and, as adults, close to each other. We look somewhat alike — enough that you can tell we're sisters. And we sound a lot alike, have similar mannerisms, often finish each other's sentences, can go on separate shopping trips and end up with very similar clothes or shoes. I can only imagine we'd be one of those weird pairs who dress alike just to freak people out if we really were twins.
