Apparently, the web is all abuzz over a video of twin baby boys having an animated conversation with one another.
What’s that? You haven’t seen it? You haven’t even heard about it? That’s okay, neither had I. But now I have seen it and, as you loyal readers of mine could probably predict, I have a few thoughts regarding what the babies are discussing.
But first, those who haven’t seen it need to watch it. And those who have seen it need to watch it again. Then and only then will you be worthy of reading my thoughts!
(Seriously, though. Watch it before scrolling down. Nothing I say will make sense if you haven’t watched the video. Yes, I realize most of what I say doesn’t make sense. But it will be especially true this time.)
So, what did you think? You did watch it, didn’t you? Didn’t you?
Okay, just checking. Now, here is what they were saying. For clarity, Baby #1 is the one on the left. Baby #2 is on the right. And for those of you who cannot tell your left from your right, I’m guessing you also cannot read. So…yeah.
Baby #2: “What did you do with my sock?!”
Baby #1: “Huh?”
Baby #2: “Don’t ‘huh’ me! My sock!! Where is it??”
Baby #1: “How am I supposed to know?”
Baby #2: “Don’t play dumb with me! I know you took my sock. Give it!”
Baby #1: “Look, I have my own sock problems, okay? See these socks I’m wearing? They don’t match.”
Baby #2: “What do you mean they don’t match? They’re fine.”
Baby #1: “No they aren’t. Look closely!”
Baby #2: “I don’t see anything.”
Baby #1: “What are you, man, blind? These are similar, but mismatched socks.”
Baby #2: “So…?”
Baby #1: “SO?!?!”
Baby #2: “Did I stutter?!”
Baby #1: “There is no way I’m going outside in mismatched socks. It’s not happening!”
Baby #2: “Hey, at least you HAVE two socks! Or, should I say, at least you have THREE socks!!”
Baby #1: “What are you implying??”
Baby #2: “I’m implying that you stole my sock and, combined with the two socks you have already, you have three socks!!”
Baby #1: “WHY would I steal your sock??”
Baby #2: “Who knows? I don’t pretend to understand the motivations of a sock bandit!!”
Baby #1: “You’re a real piece of work, you know that?”
Baby #2: “Wait a second. You just flinched…”
Baby #1: “I what?”
Baby #2: “You flinched. Every time I touch this freezer drawer, you get a look in your eye. You hid my sock in there, didn’t you?”
Baby #1: “What??”
Baby #2: “Aha! You did! You thought you could fool me, but I have read your book, you magnificent b-word!”
Baby #1: “Okay, I’ve had about enough of this. I’d like you to leave. This is my corner. See that egg beater under your foot? That’s mine.”
Baby #2: “Oh, I’ll leave alright. But not without my sock!”
Baby #1: “You’re going to feel pretty silly when you open that freezer and don’t find your sock.”
Baby #2: “Oh, it’s in there. I know it’s in there!”
(tries to open freezer)
I suppose it’s possible the babies were discussing something else. Their repeated giggles would seem to indicate as much. Still, I think the above dialogue is pretty spot on.
What do YOU think?
