    Sean: I was just chatting online with a couple of friends from home.

    Anne: How was it?

    Sean: Great. They're actually twins: a guy and girl.

    Saori: I always wanted to have a twin brother growing up.

    Sean: So my friend Graham seems to be doing really well at work. He's an attorney who works for the governor's office. And he's been leading a lot of important anti-COVID-19 initiatives, with the governor giving him a shout-out twice in one news conference.

    Anne: Wow, that's impressive.

    Sean: But he's so humble that if his sister Gretchen hadn't said anything to me, I would've never known.

    Saori: Do Gretchen and Graham get competitive at all?

    Anne: Who knows? I wonder if they often get compared because they're twins, even if they're different genders.

    Sean: I've never seen those two being competitive with each other. It might've helped that their academic and extracurricular interests didn't overlap. Gretchen is getting her second novel published, so she's quite accomplished herself.

    Saori: Their parents must be proud.
