Twin questions

When I was pregnant with twins, I got a lot of the same questions over and over:

What are you going to name them?
Will you dress them alike?
Did you use fertility treatments?
Wow you’re going to have your hands full!

Now when we are out with twins, we get a lot of questions:

What are their names?
Do you ever dress them alike?
Did you use fertility treatments?
Which one's older?
Which one's the evil twin?
Wow you have your hands full!

Jon and I have gotten used to this as we get out every weekend with them to keep everyone sane. One of the moms in my moms group is a twin and she said growing up she and her twin got lots of questions. I never thought about this… Nate and Alex will also get a lot of questions! Here was her list, oddly familiar:

What are your names?
Did your parents ever dress you alike?
Which one’s older?
Which one’s the evil twin?
If one of you gets hurt, does the other one feel it?
Do you share each other’s thoughts? Or read each other’s minds?
Wow your parents had their hands full!
