Kids, please stop fighting – your desserts are both the same!
All parents of multiple children have uttered the sentence above or some variant of it. I’m no stranger to it myself, but I try very hard not to add the redundant ‘both’; if the desserts are the same then no more needs to be said. Instead, you might say (or write):
Kids, stop your fighting – your desserts are identical!
Kids, stop your fighting – both desserts weigh 150 grams!
Yes, I once had to weigh two croissants so my younger daughter could have the biggest one – but the joke was on her, because they turned out to be identical to the nearest gram.
