“Let’s take a break and have some lunch at Manory’s,” suggested Kelli.

It was early on a Saturday afternoon. The identical twins, Kelli and Mary Lou Allen were studying for a test. They were both attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and taking the same subjects. Kelli had suggested that they do this so that they could help each other pass their difficult courses. They lived in a modest apartment on Sixth Avenue in Troy New York. They were about twenty, very pretty, blond, and of average height.

“Good idea,” responded Mary Lou. “I have about an hour of cleaning up to do. Why don’t you go there first, and when you come back, I’ll go.”

“That will be fine.”

“I just got a great idea,” exclaimed Mary Lou smiling. Let’s have some fun with the server. We look alike and are dressed alike. Go in and have your meal, then I’ll go, and pretend that I’m having a second meal exactly like yours!

“That would be mean,” said Mary Lou. “At least, I won’t be the one being the mean one.”

“I like being mean once in a while,” responded Mary Lou. “Adds a little spice to life!”

Kelli drove to the restaurant and returned within an hour. “How did it go, asked Mary Lou?”

“Good,” said Kelli. “The server there said his name is Bob Weaver. He’s taking calculus at the same school we are and he needs a tutor. He said he’s willing to pay $20 an hour. I said I might be able to help him at the library. He suggested Tuesdays and Thursdays in the afternoon. I said yes without thinking. Tuesdays are OK but I have a class on Thursdays. I’m afraid I’ll need to cancel.”

“Thursdays are open for me,” said Mary Lou. “Why don’t I do Thursdays? I can tell him my name is Kelli, and he’ll never know the difference.”

“That would be mean,” reiterated Kelli, “but that would be one way of doing it.”

“Then it’s settled,” agreed Mary Lou. “I’ll go have lunch now, and I’ll pretend that I’m you having a second meal just like the first.”

She drove off, while Kelli went back to her books.

“How did it go?” asked Kelli when Mary Lou returned. “It was funny, I got the same server you did, and he couldn’t believe that I had enjoyed the meal so much that I had come in for one exactly like it. I told him that tutoring him in calculus on Tuesdays and Thursdays would be OK. This will be at the library like you said.”

On the following Tuesday, Kelli had her first tutoring session with Bob. In her next conversation with Mary Lou, she said that the meeting had gone pleasantly, and he had thanked her profusely. “I’m happy to hear that,” commented Mary Lou. “I wouldn’t want the tutoring to be a boring chore!”

Bob Webster never knew the difference. Kelli would see him on Tuesdays and Mary Lou would do the same on Thursdays. When Mary Lou came back from the third meeting that she had had with Bob, she said, “Bob and I are getting along real well. I’d like him very much and he seems to like me. I want you to know that I saw him first! Do you know what I mean?”

“Yes I do,” said Kelli. “He looks like a very nice person. I was getting interested in him myself, but I’ll respect what you have said.”

The sessions that followed continued with the plan that the girls had concocted. Kelli would tutor on Tuesdays and Mary Lou on Thursdays. To Bob, the tutor was always Kelli.

“I’m having a problem with Bob,” announced Mary Lou one day. “He said I’m nice to him on some days and mean on some days, Tuesdays and Thursdays, actually. He’s very confused. I’ll have to admit that I don’t think he learns very well, and I may be showing it. Are you having the same problem I’m having?”

“No,” responded Kelli. “Calculus is tough. I had a hard time with it myself. I can understand why he might appear slow at times. I try not to show impatience.”

“I guess I’m not as patient as you,” commented Mary Lou. “Is it possible for you to be a little more like me when you teach him?”

“Are you saying that you want me to be mean when I teach, Mary Lou?” She asked this with some degree of amusement. “I’m not sure I could do that, but I’ll see what I can do.”

After a few more sessions had been conducted, Mary Lou said, “It looks like Bob is getting ready to pop the question. Remember, I saw him first and if he does this, he’ll will be doing the popping to me. Is it agreed?”

“I guess so,” responded Kelli. “I like him is much as you do, probably even love him, but he will have to know at some point that there have been two of us.”

“Well that can wait until he actually says something either to you or to me. It looks like you are the nice twin and I am the mean twin. I suppose he will be asking to be engaged to the nice twin, but, remember I saw him first.”

After Kelli had finished her tutoring session with Bob on the following Tuesday, she came home and told Mary Lou that Bob had declared his love for her, and had given her an engagement ring. I didn’t accept right away. “What do you think would be the right thing to do at this point?” She asked.

“I’ve been thinking about that,” said Mary Lou. “I know what the right thing to do is, but I’m not sure that I am up to it. You are the nice twin and I am the mean twin. He thinks I am you and that you are me. This is not fair to him. One of us needs to back off.”

“Why don’t you think about it until Thursday,” said Kelli. “On that day, you can skip your class, and we can go see Bob together. We’ll tell him who’s who and what’s what and he will have to decide what to do himself.”

“No,” I have a better idea, responded Mary Lou. “I know that I am the mean twin. But you are the one that he has really asked for the engagement. What we need to do is go see him, and tell him that you are the one who is accepting the engagement.”

“That’s very nice of you,” said Kelli. “There may be a bit of good news in all this. Did he ever tell you that Bob is an identical twin also?”

“Yes he did. And he told me that his brother is mean. That may be just right for me! We may be able to make it a double wedding.
