I find it humorous the difference between the two sisters. I honestly believe that there is no way they would have been able to still live together if they were exactly alike. They were meant for each other. To look out for each other and balance one another out. I think that is heart warming!
I always said that I wanted to live forever. I just never thought about whom I wanted to live with. I knew that I did not want to be alone. I could never live with a man that long or else we would kill each other. Some might say the same thing about women, but it seemed to have worked out for Sadie and Bessie. At least they had each other.
This books shows that it is better to have someone to be with you than to be alone. Now that I am thinking about this, I would want my mother to be the one by my side.
We are best friends and she is the only person that I would be able to live with for that many years. The sad thing though, is that when you live for a very long time, you don't think about the consequences. Bessie & Sadie had to see everybody they loved die before them. How hard it must have been to keep relationships.
It is easy to see that we are so spoiled these days. I know I would never have to have a baby on the side of the road and walk home. You better believe that I would wait there until someone came along and saw me. That is if I was even working. These days when you are that close to having your baby, you don't even have to work because you get off...
