Twin Shenanigans- GBE2

OK. You asked to hear some shenanigans, I'll give you shenanigans, but only one story of many. In my writing group GBE2 they asked us to talk or write about some shenanigans story, but I will tell you a twin shenanigan story.  It's an identical twins prerogative you know.

Well my story starts out on a beautiful autumn morning like any other at my house on Lake Minnetonka. I am five years old.  Mom dresses my twin sister Linda and I in a red and blue jumper with a white blouse underneath. We both have on white tights and white patent leather shoes. We feel ready for our first day of kindergarten. Watch out world the Rogers' twins are coming.

Out at the bus stop right in front of our house, Kodak pictures- click click click. Mom and good friend are there to capture every moment. Screech, the bus stops in front of us as our eyes open wide with excitement. We wave goodbye and set off into our seat next to each other.  We both comment on how wonderful the new bus smells.

Little did mom know what we twinners were concocting on the way. How could young five year old's already know how to pull a prank? Let's just say we were the youngest of five kids, so we learned from our siblings. Holding hands walking down that school hallway we had the plan down pat. "Linda, your teacher is Ms. Weebush and my teacher is Palmer. You go in that room and I will go into yours."

Giggling as we walked down to the first door, I said  "that is your room.  You go in that room and I am right next door.  We will talk after school and I will see you on the bus."  As I look back on this I giggle now because I have always been the alpha twin. Linda is two minutes older than me, but I always took the reigns. She still has to call me out on this trait now.  We live together so she has plenty of opportunities to put me in my place.

We sure had a lot to talk about as we met in the hallway after school.  We never closed our mouths the entire bus ride home.  As silly as it seems, we are still like this.  Our friends say, what on earth could you two be talking about since you have only been apart for two hours.  Well, lesson on twins, we always have something to talk about and we usually finish each others sentences.  Then we snort the same, say something like "Oh No", then make the same hand gesture in the air, roll our eyes the same and end up saying the same full sentence or more.  I know right?  It is what it is...



I am going to keep you curious about what happened that day inside the classrooms, but that is for another day and another post.  So Toodles.  Let's just say, we got away with our prank and nobody was the wiser. It was like our prank 101 Class.   Hee Hee.....

  4. How fun!! My best friends in kindergarten were twins--but they were in the same class. I only learned to tell them apart because when they laughed Danette's face got slightly redder than Callette's. The teacher could not tell them apart at all--and their mother dressed them the same nearly each and every day, but I don't think they had a lot of opportunity to prank that particular teacher. You are right--they talked to each other a lot--but somehow found a way to make room for a friend like me. We had a lot of fun the three of us--in school and out. Your post took me back to those fond memories so many years ago!! Cheers, Jenn.

  7. Hee Hee Hee- Can you believe we were so young when we tried the switcheroo for the first time. I love being a twin, even if my younger twin is the alpha and bosses me around. LOL

  10. What a great story, Laura! This is what happens in all those TV shows and movies about twins, taking each other's place, and you actually did it! Now you have to tell us the rest of the story. How great it must be to have someone so close to you. I’ve known a few sets of twins, and they all have that special bond, even if their personalities are very different. (And genetic and psychology researchers love you all!) This was a fun read. Can’t wait to hear more.

  11. When I was in High School, there were some identical twins named, and I kid you not, Keri and Karen. One day, in the middle of world history class, one of the two twins walks in during a lecture, waits until the other, presumably student in our class gets up, sits down at the same desk, while the other twin leaves. We all started laughing about that, including the teacher. Thanks for the story and the memory! Good prank!

  14. We have a set of twins in our class, and I always bug them why they've tried trading places. *sigh* Out of the thirteen years we've been going to school together, they never did trade spots for a day. My heart is slightly broken. :P Thanks for sharing!
