Maddy Waters (MW), Zoë Waters (ZW), and Nick Waters (NW)
MW: How do you guys feel about being triplets? Is it nice?
ZW: Yeah, it’s really nice.
NW: Yeah, on the whole.
MW: The worst thing is we see each other every day, every minute of every day. So we can argue a lot.
NW: Yeah, and precisely because we know each other so well.
MW: It kind of makes for very long arguments.
ZW: But it is a very rewarding experience.
MW: Yes it is.
MW: It’s just really helpful whenever one of us has a problem, like Nick’s really good at math and you’re really good at reading comprehension and stuff.
ZW: We, we pool our —
MW, ZW, NW: Resources.
MW: One of our greatest strengths is that our friends get extra friends because there’s the three-in-one package.
ZW: But I’m a very quiet person on the whole. So I get kind of reserved and nervous when I’m meeting new people especially.
MW: Hmm. You’re a little bit of an introvert, you would say?
MW: Have you ever felt that the house is crowded because you have two siblings, two parents, and three cats? And one cat in heaven?
NW: Not at all. Cats aren’t very substantial.
ZW: Not really.
MW: I’ve sometimes felt that way. But since we’re getting new rooms in a couple months, we’re going to be all by ourselves. How do you feel about that?
NW: Mixed emotions.
ZW: I don’t know how I feel. I’m kind of happy, but I always enjoyed having you two to talk to.
MW: Yeah, it’s going to be a hard transition for me, because I myself am not much for being alone.
MW: And since I’ve had you all my life, I’ve had two other friends even when I didn’t have any friends. It’s really been nice.
ZW: Yeah, it’s been so nice.
MW: I think having siblings my age gives me an open attitude toward life and people in general. And I just want to say you guys mean a lot to me and I want to thank you for being here.
