The Beyond

Kara turned around and said, “why did you move my cup?”

Kara’s twin sister looked up and said, “I didn’t touch your cup.”

“Then why is it on your side of the table?”

“You sat it there I am guessing.”

“No, I sat it down by my juice glass.”

“Ooooh, maybe it was a ghost.”

“Oh, stop it Sara.  You know that stuff happens.”

“Only in your head.”

“There is more and more science behind paranormal activity now.”

“Okay Kara, you go right ahead and believe that.  I am going to go call the beyond” she said rolling her eyes.

The Twins

The children both reached for the red ball at the same time.  A look of surprise instantly went across their faces.  They may be twins and like the same things, but it was bad when they wanted the same toy and the yelling began

The babysitter had been in the kitchen preparing their dinner when the fight began.  She had to go into the livingroom to intervene the fight over the ball.  She explained how they could both play with it if they took turns and how important sharing was. That was all the twins needed to hear.  They instantly started rolling the ball back and forth between them in an indoor game of “catch.”
