Let’s be honest, Facebook is rarely entertaining these days. Between the preponderance of weight loss advertisement, slightly-boring-statuses (stati?) and Candy Crush updates, I often wonder why I bother checking my account more than once a day.
But sometimes my FB friends link to interesting news articles that I certainly would not have discovered on my own. And today, was such a day.
The article is delightful, peppered with gems like: ‘Whenever I see flamingo fabric, I buy some and make us an outfit; we now have more than 40 in their own special closet.’ [Because Donald, the man-half of the matching-clothes-equation, designed the ubiquitous pink flamingo lawn ornament, hence the particular fondness of flamingo fabric.] And another smile-inducing quote: ‘whoever gets there first gets to choose what we’re wearing. It’s not a stampede, though; we’re both amenable to the other’s choice. If we’re going to a party, we’ll discuss what to wear like any other couple, except the difference is we want to look the same.’
Since it was kind of a slow, dreary day at home, and my only option for entertainment was cleaning my thoroughly obliterated house for the 4th time in as many days, I decided the professor and I needed to match, too.
It just so happened that I was wearing a blue and white striped t-shirt (which I may or may not have also worn the previous day) and he just so happens to have a blue and white striped t-shirt (stuffed in the back of a dresser drawer).
Ta-da. (Please note, I’m also wearing a pair of his Puma sneakers to complete the effect.)
