Whose girlfriend?


On occasion, when talking with my girlfriend I suddenly refer to Jan. She always becomes very reserved and insecure and puts on a really uncertain face.

I think it’s so fun that after so many years she still isn’t absolutely sure, and I always end up ruining it by bursting into laughter.

She doesn’t find that amusing either.


One of our favorite responses to questions like “Who is who?” or “Which one are you?” is something like “Um, wait. Today is Friday, right? Then I’m Jan.”

People actually believe this, folks! We know other twins who say they honestly don’t know; others say they aren’t twins at all, but actually five(!) months apart – and people don’t even stop to think about the impossibility of that.

Some people are just asking for it :) :)
