When We Were Free to Be

This chapter describes how the author feels strange to be so proud, at age forty-six, of something she did when she was seven. Free to Be … You and Me is that badge that allows her to say, “I was there.” To this day, people recognize her: “Wasn't that you … ?” Or, more accurately, since they often know the author is an identical twin: “Was that you or Robin talking to Marlo in that dome contraption?” They're asking because they're still watching it, and they're still watching it because they now have kids of their own and want them to watch it. Free to Be lives on—for all the right reasons.

Keywords:   identical twin, Robin, Marlo, dome contraption, Free to Be
