Day Two Hundred Sixty One, October 10, 2011

Have you noticed how married couples begin to look alike after some years, and how people end up resembling their pets? Spend a long time with someone and you start to borrow their laugh, facial ticks, gestures, walks, and accents; you become so close, like family. Hence the saying, “be careful with whom you mix”, as you will become like them.

I found this so endearing when I spotted these two men in a Shanghai street with their daily newspapers, totally in rhythm.
