So this story may sound familiar. I know I have talked about this subject before...but I am still dumbfounded everytime this happens.
In Target (like usual..hey, it was hot outside!) and a woman in her 40's walks up to us and looks at my twins.
Woman: "Wow" she says, "They sure do look alike. Almost like Twins."
Me: "Yes, they are twins."
Woman: (looks at my daughter) "Oh twins! I love twins! How cute...How old are you?"
(daughter says she is 4)
Woman: (looks at my son) "And how old are you?"
(son says he is 4)
woman: "Oh, you are both 4" (mild confusion on her face...looks at me) "Are they both 4?"
me: "uhh, yes"
woman: "oh, how neat" (walks away)
I never understand this.
This happens a lot. A lot more than you would think. I am perplexed?!
On a good note we managed not to destroy the Target store this time. Most of the popcorn stayed in the bag, the shopping cart was not leaving a steady stream of juice behind us, and the yelling and "I Wants" was at a minimum. Whew!
