For those of you who don't know I am an identical twin.
So while growing up I would always get the questions; "Do you know what your sister is thinking right now?" If I hit you right now would she feel it?" or would you be able to feel something was wrong if your sister got in an accident?" Hmmm...I don't know about you but these are three of the lamest questions in the world. I'm sorry I don't mean to offend for those of you who's curiosity got the better of them and you asked one of these questions before.
For the longest time I was always labeled as "the twin or twins." This would always drive me nuts. and as a result of this in my later years, I mostly do whatever I can to stay completely independent from my sister. Most of the time I don't tell people I have a twin unless they meet her and suddenly realize that we look REALLY similar or see a picture of us together.
I still get calls from my sister telling me that someone saw me somewhere and they thought I was her. They would try smiling or waving hi to me and I would look at them weird because I have no clue who they were. :-)
How were you labeled while growing up?
