18 things that'll only make sense if you're a twin

We don’t have a telepathic connection. Well, maybe we do a little bit.

1. Having your own names, but being referred to as ‘the twins’ pretty much all the time

2. The parents who birthed you, who have seen or spoken to you almost every day for your whole lives, forgetting which one of you is which

3. People being like, “I’ll never remember which is which, I’ll just say Twin 1 and Twin 2″

4. This is especially annoying if you’re fraternal twins. We don’t even LOOK alike

5. You constantly have to tell people that no, you don’t have a telepathic connection

6. But then you both say something at the same time and think, “Wow. Maybe…”

7. Actually, you’re able to communicate through looks and sometimes know what the other is thinking, so you probably ARE psychic

8. You’ve discovered that people are very attached to the ‘evil twin’ myth

9. And the idea that one of you is the ‘smart* one’ and the other is the ‘pretty* one’ (*insert the adjectives of your choice here)

10. You get asked extremely weird questions, like if you’ve ever shared a romantic partner (ew)

11. And “If you’re in pain, does your twin feel it?” Amm… no

12. But if you’re an identical twin, you have played a couple of tricks on people in your time. It’s practically the Twin Law

13. If you are the ‘older’ twin, it is your god-given right to lord it over the ‘younger’ twin (even if it’s just by a minute or two)

14. You fight more often and more viciously with your twin than you do with any other member of your family

15. But five minutes later you’re back to being co-conspirators

16. Basically, your lives are like one big inside joke that no one else can get

17. And as much as you get tired of the bad jokes and getting compared to your sibling…

18. …You can’t imagine not being a twin. It must be really weird.
