OT: A Bit of a Riddle
Posted on: 10/27/2019 02:35 PM

I was talking to a young father the other day who I had met only about a month ago. Although one of the two boys who was with him was slightly taller than the other, I asked, "Are the boys twins?" Plus, they looked extremely alike. The father of the 4-year-olds replied that they indeed are. The father added that he loves one of the two twins just as if he were his. So, what do you suppose he meant? I know the answer to my own question. Can you be the first to explain what the father meant by his odd statement?

Dave - Mommy definitely had a crazy night one night or at least within 24 hours!

Hints:

The twins weren't adopted. Well, that's only half true. Technically, it's true to say one of the twins was indeed adopted.

Remember Dan Fogelberg's hit song, "Power Of Gold"? It's SORT OF along the lines of that album title from which the song came.

If no one has figured it out, I'll post the answer tonight.

The Dan Fogelberg (and Tim Weisberg) song, "Power Of Gold," is from the album TWIN SONS OF DIFFERENT MOTHERS.

In the case that I'm talking about, the twin sons are from two different fathers. Yes, different fathers! The father, who spoke with me regarding my asking him if his sons are twins, said the two four-year-olds are, but he is the biological father of only one of them. The other twin was fathered by a different man. I'm not sure if the mother of the twins is the man's wife or his girlfriend. Nonetheless, he said he loves his biological son just as much as the non-biological one. He further said at the time his wife/girlfriend conceived, they were having relationship difficulties and that she was intimate with another man within 24 hours of being intimate with him. Therefore, they weren't sure who the father of the twins was so they had the twins DNA-tested. I'm sure everyone involved was shocked with the results. So, that's the answer to the riddle...a set of twin boys with two different fathers! Below is a link to an article about when such a pregnancy occurs. It is extremely rare according to the article.

I love the power of gold, K of G and i think i saw somewhere recently where a woman had twins .. one Caucasian and another African American and not on Springer..... and Dan F's hits are excellent - part of the plan.. I do have an album of his that I think is great that includes another rockier hit... "love gone by" ... the whole album is excellent "Netherlands"

Dave - Like you, I have Fogelberg's "Nether Lands." I played it just the other day. In fact I have all of his first eight or nine albums excluding one called "Interchords" which I'm not familiar with at all. I sort of lost interest in his music after that but picked up a few of his others on cassette or CD when I'd find them at garage sales or thrift stores. But, "Nether Lands" was one of my favorite albums of his.

Regarding your mention of a set of Caucasian and African American children being twins, I am also familiar with such a case. In the case that I read about 20 years ago or more, a Caucasian lady gave birth to a set of twins as mentioned. I remember reading that she lived near a military base and had relations with two different military men of different races.

I was discussing this matter with a coworker from another department during lunch this past week. I was very surprised to learn that she had twins. Not just one set but two! The first were boys followed by a set of twin girls. She said her husband has a twin sister. So incredible about how twins continue in some families. A classmate of mine didn't have children until she was in her 30s. She was pregnant only once but that was enough for her, she said, because she gave birth to triplets. I couldn't tell them apart as boys, but they looked different enough that I could tell them apart as young adults.

Twins - I can only imagine - Three at once... Yikes... I heard of identical twins but I am not familiar with the phrase Identical Triplets - there might be ... but I have never known triplets either
