A tete-e-tete with a colleague reminded me of my often repeated mistake of jumping into conclusions. So here I was in the afternoon catching up with my colleague over a cup of coffee near the vending machine. Suddenly, we are talking about kids.
Colleague: My two sons are 15 years old and my daughter is 7 years old.
Me: So, you have twins?
This is really strange. I have heard siblings who are an year apart. But siblings of the same age. It is not possible. Or is it? My thoughts were interrupted by his words.
Colleague: One has his birthday on March and the other on April.
Is he saying they are not twins because of the gap of one month? How can a mother give birth to one child in March and the other in April? Is this medically? Is this a medical miracle? My colleague continued with a big smile.
Colleague: This is my second marriage. One from my previous marriage and the other from her previous marriage.
Like I said, I should stop jumping into conclusions.
