Twin Sisters Trick Teachers by Switching Classes

Twins like to Trick People

Our First Time Playing a Twin Trick

Looking back at my childhood, I realize that Laura and I figured out very young that this twin thing could be a blast! Not only did we realize it would be fun but we also surmised that we could play some sneaky tricks on people. Nothing that would intentionally hurt people, just harmless, good, clean fun.

Our first big attempt at twin shenanigans was when we were only Five Years Old. Yep, you heard it right-Two little kindergarteners already using their twinhood to their advantage. So the story goes...

Laura and I talked and giggled, late into the night, in our back room. We were going over our plan to pull off the big "Twin Switcheroo." We discussed details so the morning would go down without a hitch. My kindergarten class was on the first floor and Laura's was on the second. She told me as much as she possibly knew about her teacher and I did the same. She told me that her teacher was a pretty blond and seemed pretty nice. She explained that she thought Miss Backlund seemed to like children. That was a relief to hear! I told Laura that I had a Really old teacher(around 50) which was ancient to me at this age. Mrs. Weebush was a nice old lady that let us do fun things like the game called, "Show and Tell." She also played a game where one of us would put our head on her lap while someone else would hide a certain trinket. They would count to 10 and then the child not peeking would go try to find it. That game, I told Laura, was called, Hide and Seek. After going over the final details for the big day, we finally put our heads on our pillows and tried to fall asleep.

Mom came in our bedroom to wake us up like she always did at 8:00AM. "Rise and Shine Linda and Laura." Little did she know what we were up to. Mom had matching outfits out for us, something that neither of us ever appreciated. Why parents do that to twins is beyond me? I know moms intentions were good but how Annoying! We went through our normal morning routine of eating froot loops and hanging out until it was time to get on the bus. On our ride to school we both had butterflies but nothing that made us want to back out.


Switching Classes with my Twin Sister

I will Never forget how It felt when Laura and I stepped off the bus and started the walk into school. We whispered to each other whether we should try this switching class prank or not. What if we get caught? What if someone talks to me and I don't know how to pretend to know them? Could we flunk kindergarten if we get caught? What kind of punishment would the teachers give us if we were caught? So many things flooded our minds now, about what we were about to do.

We mustered up the courage and followed through with the plan. Laura went to my classroom and I went to hers. No one was the wiser and we both came out of it feeling Exhilarated! We felt so powerful and sneaky! More and more exciting ideas of how to trick people rushed through our minds. On the bus ride home, we laughed so hard our heads hurt. We each shared our exciting stories of the day. After discussing our high jinks in much detail, we both looked at each other and said at the same time, "let's do this again." And that we did, Time and Time again...

If you believe twin tricks stop when one gets older, you are wrong.

That's a great story. When I was that age my best friends were twin boys and they used to do that stuff all the time.

The story had a great pace to it. You are obviously a natural

Being a twin is really like the ultimate experience of unconditional love. Whether me and my twin or Minnetonka Twin fight, we are fine in two minutes. We always know we are there for eachother. Psychic for eachother too. That gets weird.

I loved this article. I've been reading through several of your hubs over the past hour. I am a work-from-home freelance writer with three girls...including two-year-old twin girls. My twins make me laugh everyday with the way they act when they are together. I always wonder about what they must be thinking...being a twin. I really enjoy your hubs!

I have two brothers- twins! They did just like you did- switching class in college- and in Physical Education when the platoon leader checked their haircuts. One wore his hair short and clean, the other- the long hippie look of those times which was not allowed in class. It was successful! More pranks followed. However, they quickly dropped the idea doing other pranks when the other's girlfriend kissed the wrong guy! LOL! Funny hub!

Minnetonka Twin 6 years ago from Minnesota Author

Hi Lita and welcome to my hub. Too funny, you know the games twins play. You should hub some of their tricks. Laura and I did some tricks to dates too. I had Laura break up with guys for me because I didn't want to deal with hurting them. She pretended to be me. Oh, twinship is so fun.

Ha. I love it, that must be a lot of fun messing with people. I've always loved doing that myself, I remember sitting on the corner, in my early teens, with a corded telephone (all there was then) and pretending to talk. The looks I got!! Peace!! Tom

Hi justom-I love your sense of humor. I get how you got some looks from talking on that corded phone. I have had a lot of fun confusing people and doing some fun little tricks. Never a dull moment around here. Thanks for stopping in justom.

One of my best friends is a twin and she has lots of fun. And messing around when dating is a constant laugh for her and her twin. They get up to all kinds of things. It's great to have a twin!

I love this!! I always wanted to have twins when I was pregnant with my sons. Of course now that they are teenagers I'm VERY happy there is only one of each of them to deal with. HA I'm so glad for you to have someone to share your life with this way! I have an almost twin sister LaurieDawn, I just had to wait until I was old enough before she was happy to have me around...before that she had to babysit me! :)

Dense-I never liked it when mom dressed us the same. She died when I was in fourth grade and of course, dressing the same quit as dad really didn't shop for us. It freaks me out when I see twins dress alike as adults but hey, it's a free country. Thanks for stopping

Minnetonka Twin 6 years ago from Minnesota Author

AngRose-I think it's great that you and sis are so close now. With age comes wisdom and I can vouch for that. When Laura and I were younger, we pretended not to want to hang out together in school. Of course, she was my favorite play mate. Also, now that we're older, we tell each other how much we love each other as we see how blessed we are. I guess when were younger we all take each other for granted.

You are so lucky, my only sister was over four years older and she always hated me, jealous of mom and me is my only guess and I got a lot of pain from her over the years. I always wanted a sister so bad but my husband's sister became that and strangely enough she was a year older than my sister. (I did have 5 brothers though that toughened me up.)

Minnetonka Twin 5 years ago from Minnesota Author

Polly-I know that you and I have a lot in common with our older sisters. Thank God I have my twin sister as my older sister and I have the same issues you do with your sister. She wants to compete and belittle but my twin always supports me and builds me up. I am so glad you have a sister in law to get that connection with. Happy New Year my friend:)

I could not read fast enough to envision what the two of you were up to. This was a blast to read. I could actually hear your little girl's laughter as you were working out your plans that night. I could feel the adrenalin rush the two of you must have felt going into the other's classroom and the tingling nerve sensation one gets when they are playing a joke on someone. Very fun to read. Just wondering, how many of your boyfriends did the two of you pull this switcheroo on?:) Looking forward to reading more of your stories. Take care.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 5 years ago from Minnesota Author

Hi Nana-We did pull the swicheroo on boyfriends. It was especially hard for us to break up with a guy, so the other twin would call and do the deed. We also have a couple stories of the other twin going on a date with the other twins boyfriend. Fun times! Thanks for reading my story, so glad you enjoyed it:)

Too funny! I loved reading this story. It astonishes me to remember how intelligent kindergartners are- we know it as kids, but forget as adults, I guess. Thanks for the reminder. I was a bit devious myself, without a twin!

Got me wondering what else you two pulled, as you grew older and more devious! I guess I will have to read some of your comments- it appears you reveal more stories within them, hahahaha.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 5 years ago from Minnesota Author

I know, isn't it funny how we forget how smart we were as kids? I tell you, Laura and I were fully aware of the endless possibilities the twin thing was. Your right that I have many more of these cool stories. It's so fun to go back and relive some of these :-)
