They are separated by 38 years, but they are the SAME FRICKIN' PERSON. I know that Emma shares only 50% of Bill's DNA - but sometimes I think that I was merely the vessel, the carrier, the means to an end - and that Emma inherited everything from Bill.
Look at those stares, that uncompromising countenance, the stylish dress. Could these two people not be more closely aligned?
Emma was excited that her father was coming to see her because he had promised (a) to bring her 2 bottles of red wine and (b) to take her to a nice Italian restaurant on Wellington. Bill was excited to see Emma because he honestly enjoys her company - and he was going to be able to show her off to one of his favorite clients. In the parlance of Emma and Bill - a "Win/Win" situation.
You would think that two people who are so similar would always be agreeable with each other. But, you would be wrong. Sure, in short bouts of time they work fine together. But, put them together for over a week and the sparks will fly. And, I love them both to distraction! How did I get so lucky to have BOTH of them in my life??
