SARASOTA, Florida - After years of trying to figure out exactly where to fit in, the McBriar sisters, Mary and Terry have come to the realization that their special situation calls for special measures.
One day the two girls were sitting in their living room which is located in a duplex. Terry was reading a book entitled, Relationship Tips and Tricks On How Not To Let Yourself Become Too Attached.
Mary was watching a show on the History Channel. Suddenly Mary turned to Terry and said "That's it!"
Terry looked up and saw that Mary was watching a documentary on the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
Terry asked her what in the world was she talking about. And Mary said that they should run off to join the circus. Terry got a puzzled look on her face.
Mary then said that she had been thinking about it ever since that day two years ago when they had, had a menage a trois with that circus clown, Mr. Wiener.
Terry laughed and said that she remembers that Mr. Wiener smelled kinda funny (no pun intended).
Mary said that she did not want to brag but Mr. Wiener had told her that they were a whole lot more fun than the bearded lady, the circus fat lady, and the circus ticket booth lady all put together.
Terry informed Mary that they really had no circus talent. Mary thought about it for a while and she told Terry that every circus and carnival in the world has an 8-foot tall man, a half-man half-woman character, a sword swallower, and of course the obligatory fat lady.
She then said that they were going to do something different. Something that no one in the entire history of circuses had ever done, seen, or even thought of.
Terry was really excited. "What are we going to do sis?" She asked.
And Mary said that the McBriar sisters were going to become the world's first conjoined twin human cannonballs.
Terry fainted and almost knocked them both down to the floor. Mary slapped her a few times and Terry came to.
"I'm sorry. For a second there I thought that you had said that we were going to become the world's first conjoined twin human cannonballs."
"That's exactly what I said." Terry fainted again and this time Mary lost her balance and the two girls tumbled to the floor.
When Terry came to the two sisters talked about it. Mary finally convinced Terry by telling her that she was going to go ahead and do it with or without her.
Terry told her that it was impossible.
Mary rolled her eyes and whispered, "No shit Sherlock."
After several "Double Shots" of Jack Daniels on the rocks Mary was finally able to convince Terry to come around.
Terry hugged her sister and told her that she would follow her to the ends of the world.
Mary smiled and thought to herself, no shit Sherlock.
SIDENOTE: A lot of people do not realize it, but Mary and Terry McBriar were actually the original Doublemint Twins.
