People of Walmart

It shouldn't just be limited to pictures. Here was the conversation that transpired between me and a patron of Walmart last weekend in Pratt, USA:

Person of Walmart: OH MY GOODNESS, are those twins?!?!
Me: Yes.
POW: They are so cute. They are identical.
Me: Actually, they aren't.
POW: No? They look so much alike! They aren't identical?
Me: No.
POW: But, they're twins (already looks thoroughly confused)??!?
Me: Nope, not identical but they do look more alike now than ever.
POW: So, what are they then?
Me: Fraternal twins.
POW: They aren't identical twins?
Me: No.

Long pause......wait for it....

POW: Are you sure they are twins?
Me: Almost 99% sure.

Only a person of Wal-Mart would ask you that! That is fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

Just tell them they are twins but "different" fathers. Wal-Mart associates and shoppers will identify with that.
