The Real Dynamic Duo

(My sister and I have spent so much time together over the years that we can finish each other’s sentences and know what the other is thinking. My cousin is visiting, when we hear a thud upstairs and go running upstairs to check.)

Me: “What was that?”

Mom: “That was me, sorry. I knocked over the lamp.”

Me: “Oh, ok I thought that you—”

Me and sister: *simultaneously* “—rolled out of bed and fell on the floor.”

(My mom and cousin stare at us in disbelief.)

Sister: “Stop staring at us. You’re looking at me like my friend at school.”

Me: “Oh, you mean that girl with the—” *motions to hair*

Sister: “Yeah, and she always—” *makes arm flapping motions*

Sister: “Yeah, and she can’t go without—”

Me: “—her special pencil because she—”

Sister: “Yeah, and she—”

Me: “Yeah, and the—”

Sister: “Yep, that’s her.”

(My mom and cousin now have their mouths hanging open.)

Mom: “Right, that’s it. I’m going back to bed.”

Cousin: “How do you do that?!”

Me and sister: *simultaneously* “Years of practice.”


Me and sister: *simultaneously, looking at each other* “Ok, this is actually getting—”

Sister: “Creepy?”

Me: “Yeah.”

Cousin: “You two scare me.”

Me and sister: *simultaneously* “You’re welcome.”

Me: “This reminds me of that time that we—”

Sister: “Yeah, I remember we kept on—”

Me: “Yeah, and Daddy had to come in to make us shut up and—”

Sister: “We wound up grounded?”

Me and sister: *simultaneously, both sighing happily* “Good times.”
