Twins Enjoy Unique Support

Nikki Honda, Co-Sports Editor

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to have a twin sibling?

I think it would be interesting.

There would always be someone there to talk with that would understand my problems and be there for me whenever I wanted. They could give me constant advice and support me.

Since my twin and I would be the same age, we wouldn’t have to worry about older or younger sibling problems. I know from experience, having older brothers, that their excuse for everything is that they are older, which makes them superior to me in their minds. I always have to listen to what they say and do whatever they want. However, if I had a twin, that wouldn’t be the case.

Sophomore Danielle Thomas thinks it is awesome being a twin. “You always have someone to hang out with,” she said. She also said having a twin comes with other benefits. For example, her twin, Nicole Thomas, teaches her how to dance.

Although there are advantages to having a twin, there might also be difficulties. Thomas said she and her twin mostly get along, but do fight on occasion.

Twins might have to worry about competing with each other in academics, sports, or extracurricular activities. In addition, having a twin could cause tensions within the family if the two don’t get along and are constantly arguing.

Although dealing with this competition may be difficult and frustrating, I still think the pros would outweigh the cons. If we were the same gender, we could do homework together, share clothes, and even play jokes on teachers or classmates if we were identical.

I think being a twin would be a unique and enjoyable way to grow up.
