My friend and I are in a book store, looking at pregnancy books.
Friend – So you’re sure you’re not having twins?
Me, wide-eyed with fear – Uhh, the ultrasound only showed one baby in here. There had better be only one baby in here!
I look down and poke at my tummy.
Friend – The twin could just be hiding behind the baby you saw on the monitor.
Me – I seriously doubt it. Plus, on another visit, my midwife found only one heartbeat in there.
Friend – Maybe the heartbeats synchronized and you thought you were only hearing one.
Me – Seriously, you’re freaking me out now. I do not want twins. …But I guess if I did have twins in here, one of them would clearly be evil, with all the hiding and evasiveness.
Looking down again
Me – Show yourself evil one!! Make yourself known!
Friend – Let’s see if they have any books for naming evil twins, because it’s going to need a good one.
Like me on Facebook, and escape the wrath of the mythical evil twin occupying my womb. I’m taking suggestions on what fe’s evil name should be. Ideas?
George or Alice for the good twin. Keith or Angelica for the evil twin.
Surely you jest! ;-) I think I imagined that with every pregnancy! :-p
The questions my friend asked me were real, and so was me freaking out, to be sure. We actually also did find a book with “good names and bad names” believe it or not!
Bahahaha! Welcome to parenthood. It actually starts before said child arrives. ;-)
Twins are fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun! Clearly, I’m completely sane.
I wonder if I have any hope for keeping some sanity with just one…
Not likely, but that’s part of the fun.
I’ll accept the challenge.
Okay, but now I’m following you just to see if you keep your sanity…in addition to, you know, awesome writing and stuph.
Ha! Let me know how I do.
Maybe just name the evil twin whatever the good twin’s name is, only spelled backwards? Worked for Stephen King…
So the evil twin’s name will be Trob. That’ll work.
I’m glad you liked it ;)
This was hilarious. Love it.
For a male evil twin: Hans Ramoray! For a female evil twin: Hans Ramoray!
LOL! That is probably going to be the best suggestion ever.
From looking at pregnancy books to housing an evil twin in your womb. That’s quite the fantastical leap!
My friend (and my imagination) are pretty fantastic.
