It has been discovered that after years of loyal companionship, people begin to resemble their pets.
I can attest to this, especially when I go to the dog park to witness white curly haired ladies playing fetch with their white curly haired poodles and sour faced bull-like men releasing grumpy grump growls that complement the slobbery snarls of their English bulldogs.
I do not believe that this trend is limited only to human/animal relationships. Let's face it. Just like those pet owners and their doting dog doppelgangers, sometimes, we end up looking like our significant others.
Whether it's a facial characteristic, matching t shirts that read "I'm With Stupid" or similarly groomed hairstyles, this strange occurrence isn't always intentional. Sometimes it just happens. We become a unit. We begin to gravitate towards our partner's signature style and find ourselves wearing identical colors without even realizing it.
Rather than fight this bizarre and inevitable happening, I am going to embrace it.
I was doing a little online window shopping at my go-to tee store where all the cool kids go to buy basics, Alternative Apparel, where I found the Cropped Large Collar Jacket, a dreamy faux Elmer Fudd patterned winter coat for chicks.
Then I spied with my little eye the Buffalo Plaid Jacket, a similar style for dudes featuring a matching Elmer Fuddian print but executed in a rugged, manly man design.
I immediately pictured myself walking in a winter wonderland with my man, clad in these companion coats and holding hands, like two warm peas in a pod. Then my fantasy was hijacked by a couple of random passersby who threw snowballs at us while alternating between producing obnoxious gagging and kissing sounds.
They were just jealous, no doubt.
