mystery solved

So right now we are across the country spending some time with Kenz and Tyler (yea!), and we've already had such a good time, doing things like eating at Ben's Chili Bowl, staring at Amish people and devoting much of our time deciding what food to eat. We sent for our twin DNA test results a few weeks ago, and after staring at the letter for a few days (for some reason we were hesitant to actually open it) we made a double layer cake and decided we were ready. After about 10 minutes of discussing how we would open it, we handed it to Jon and went through various nervous coping mechanisms. And this is what happened...

It's silly to watch this (silly) video and even wonder what the results were, based on how we do things like make the exact same pitch of shriek, but we were raised being told that we were fraternal so this was a big deal to us. Not to offend any fraternal twins, but being identical is pretty rad (and rare). Jon and Tyler were so nervous and had likely hatched a plan for how to deal with us if the results weren't what we wanted, but luckily we didn't have to think about that.
No test result would change the bond that we have with each other, but this makes me love being a twin even more.
