Silly Twin Questions

“Are you IDENTICAL or FRATERNAL?”

Question

It’s really amazing (and extremely funny) the questions people-on-the-street ask when meeting the twins. They’re real-life “Here’s Your Sign” moments. Here are a few of our favorite questions, and our typical answers…

  1. Are they twins?

    No. Just this one.

  2. Are they identical?

    No. One has longer hair.

  3. Are they “paternal”?

    No. It was a virgin birth.

  4. Do twins run in your family?

    Yes, but usually they learn to walk, first. They’ll probably jump and climb, too

  5. How do you tell them apart?

    I just look at them.

  6. How did you know you were having twins?

    Well, we had sex twice that night, so we thought we had a pretty good chance.

  7. Did you take drugs? (Cindy always gets this one!)

    Well, there was this one time in Majorca…

  8. They don’t look anything alike. Are they natural?

    No, they’re plastic!

  9. They don’t look alike. Are you sure they’re twins?

    Well, I was there for the birth! But I guess the doctor could’ve pulled a fast one.

  10. Oh, you have twins. Are they brothers?

    No, just twins.

  11. Which one’s the “good” one?

    Neither, they’re both equally bad!

  12. When one cries, does he wake the other?

    No. Twins can’t hear each others cries because they communicate with their special telepathic language only.

  13. What do you do when they cry at the same time?

    Sometimes I cry; sometimes I go to Starbucks.

  14. Is raising twins expensive?

    Yes. Would you like to make a donation?

  15. Wow, twins. You must really have your hands full!

    Why? Are you offering to clean my house?

  16. Twins, huh? Just wait, it only gets harder!

    Thanks. Just this morning I woke up hoping to receive a word of discouragement while simultaneously pushing a stroller and pulling a shopping cart through Wal-Mart. Have a nice day. 😛

Thanks to the many parents of multiples who provided some of these snappy answers…
