Being a twin must have its ups and downs. Many twins report feeling frustrated to not have their own, totally unique identities, or that other people constantly associate them with their sibling. At the same time, the perks of being a twin are endless. You automatically have a best friend for life, and, if you’re identical twins, the pranking possibilities are endless.
Do you know any identical twins? How hard is it to tell them apart?
Naturally, the idea of having a clone is pretty darn cool. Movies like The Parent Trap or even Harry Potter with its famous Weasley twins go to show just what kinds of shenanigans twins can get themselves into.
Redditors asked the twins in their midst to share their best stories of deception or good clean fun, and these will have you wishing you had a twin of your own.
Can you tell them apart?
My sister and I had been asked all through out school if we had ever switched classes. So our Senior year of highschool we finally decided to do it. I wore an outfit of hers and did my hair like hers and vice versa. I sat through her art class no problem. The teacher never fucking noticed. She sat through my American Government class and the teacher waited until the last few seconds of class to make the announcement, “I’d like to thank Kate for visiting our class today, please tell Becky we hope to see her back here tomorrow.”
Did I mention my American Government teacher was f**king awesome? (brqqme)
I’ve run into people (not close friends, just acquaintances) I haven’t wanted to talk to and have pretended to be my identical twin to avoid annoying small talk:
“Oh, I’m sorry, you must think I am [my name]. We are twins, this happens a lot.” (thetanpecan)
