And you probably still do.

You owned one of these shirts from their Walmart clothing line.

Probably also this shirt because it was so cool.

Especially fashion parties.

You had a subscription to their magazine, even though it didn't last that long.

You got annoyed when people couldn't tell them apart.

You wore out your Gameboy battery rotating in between Get a Clue and The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley.

Essentially, you just wanted a twin. So bad.
