by J. Flores"Before we go on, I have something to tell you.
I am a liar.
Uno is not Uno's real name. Dos is not Dos's real name. I'm sorry that I had to lie to you.
When my friends and family ask me about my day, I have so many stories to tell them. But this gets confusing for anyone listening because I teach different kids on different days. It's hard people to remember all those names.
"I used to say. "You wouldn't believe what happened today with Milo and Ricardo."
Immediately, my friend would ask, "Milo and Ricardo - which ones were they again?"
Then I would have to explain who Milo and Ricardo were. I got tired of always explaining who everyone was, so I started using nicknames.
Now, my friend might ask, "How was your day today? Any stories?"
And now I'd reply, "Of course! You wouldn't believe what happened today with The Twins."
"The Twins!" My friend will now say, with recognition. "What did Uno and Dos do today?"
It's very difficult to remember Milo and Ricardo. There are a lot of people out there with names like that. It's much easier to remember them as The Twins. And so, Milo and Ricardo became The Twins: Uno and Dos.
Milo and Ricardo are not the real names of Uno and Dos. Milo and Ricardo are names that I made up. Uno and Dos have different real names that I will not tell you. I'm sorry that I had to lie to you again.
But each of the other kids that I teach has a nickname.
I will tell some of those nicknames to you."
