Squiggling in Lookalike Close

Enid and Griselda Perkins are identical twins. They live next door to each other in Lookalike Close. Enid lives at No 1 (after all, she was born a minute before her sister) and Griselda lives at No 2. Like most identical twins, they share the same interests and have the same opinions about almost everything, although when it comes to nail varnish, Enid prefers pink while Griselda goes for blue. And as for their choice of hairbrush, Enid plumps for blue and Griselda for pink. The sisters are both committed vegetarians but curiously, they both love pigs. To save at least two piglets from being eaten, they each adopted one. Enid named her’s Streaky and Griselda chose Pinkie-boo. At 5 o’clock on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Enid and Streaky go to Griselda’s for tea, and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, Griselda and Pinkie-boo go to Enid’s. Streaky and Pinkie-boo became great friends and as soon as they meet they get into a huddle and squeak and squiggle and snort and squinch all afternoon. Enid and Griselda bought them each a phone so they could chat and text each other and share pictures on Instagrunt while they were having their coats brushed by their mistresses. You should hear them! If you could draw their chats, they would look like pizzas from Mars!
