After one week of agony, 26-year old Siamese twins Jane and Joan took a fateful step. The sisters had been joined at the hip since birth. Fortunately, they loved each other, enjoyed the same things and liked doing them in the same way. Being Siamese twins had worked out well for them so far: they grew up, helped each other through school and university and started work as accountants in the same office. The only difference to anybody else in the office was that their desks had to stand at an odd angle and that they sat on the same custom-built chair. Everything changed when Joe joined the company: Jane thought him gorgeous and instantly fell in love, but Joan hated him as much as Jane loved him. After a lot of talk and many tears, they went into hospital and were surgically separated. There were no physical complications. When they woke up and looked at each for the first time ever from opposite sides of the room, all they wanted was to be back together again. When Joe came to visit, he found them busy with needle and thread.
