Are you sure you didn't accidentally name them wrong? Maybe Lila is Victoria and Victoria is Lila!

The next development in this twin trickery is the old bait and switch-eroo: You'll hear a loud thump from the other room where the girls are playing, then a loud "OW!", which will cause you to run and find out what happened. Then the fun begins:
"Are you OK, Victoria?"
[slight sniffle] "Yes, Daddy."
"Where's your sister?"
[blinking innocently} "I don't know..."

(FYI, I was inspired to write yet another haiku because of the impersonation story--help me, I need an intervention!)

I once worked at a school where there was a set of twins who loved to pretend they were each other, and I didn't figure it out for months.

They had a great time while I was doing noon hour supervision...and here I just thought the kid seemed to be everywhere. Duh!
