O.K. I confess I don't have twins. BUT. . .

I lived with a family who had identical twin girls. Whenever I went shopping with them their mother would always get the "Are they Twins?" again and again and again

So one day I asked her if I could respond the next time someone asked. She said yes. About 2 min later. . . "Are they twins?" I looked the lady dead in the eye and said "nope, this one is mine and that one is hers". I thought my friend was going to pee on herself she laughed so hard at that poor ladies expression.

Try it sometime when you're out with a friend. Its too funny.

My younger sisters are identical twins. When people asked "Are they twins" when they were little, my dad would say, "No, they're 6 months apart."

My fave twin moments are when I get mistaken for one of the twins. As in, w/ my lithe 24 yo sister (who has an equally skinny twin) and I are standing there and someone asks, "Are you twins?"

I'll say, "She is, I'm not." It really confuses them.

my youngest is one year younger than my twins (and they do look like triplets ) so I get to do that "he is, he's not" all the time. love it.
