Sister Human

Over time my twin sister and I have come up with a nickname for each other when we write e-mails or thank you notes.
Dear Sister Human,
Dear Sister Homo Sapien, (when Kate feels her anthropology background shining through)

When we were little we owned every single one of the Bernstein Bear books.  Well, they called each other Sister Bear and Brother Bear.  As a joke we just tacked on our relationship to the type of animal we were. It stuck, and now that's how we address most everything to each other. I will start calling Martin, Husband Human.  
I get to see my sister human in four weeks.
I can't wait, then we can be together again.
Our silly selves, laughing at what no one else thinks is funny.
But for now, we'll have to stick to writing eighteen e-mails a day...
