Two is better than one.
Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.
Edward and Bella.
Bert and Ernie.
Ben and Jerry.
Thing 1 and Thing 2.
Or those shirtless Abercrombie & Fitch twins . . .
Or the joyful pairings of the season:
Mistletoe and kisses.
Crispy latkes and sweet applesauce.
Two turtle doves.
Glitter and well everything (eventually that sparkly stuff will find its way to global glitter domination).
Which naturally brings to mind the interesting pairing of celebrities and pets . . .
Okay so that’s not exactly a dynamic duo, but “Man’s best friend” qualifies under the buddy category, and that brings me to the harmony at the core of any good pairing.
“We need each other, deeper than anyone ever dares to admit even to themselves. I think it is a genetic imperative that we huddle together and hold on to each other. There is no question in my mind that there is nothing else in life, really, than friendship.”
— Patch Adams
Whether we forge those bonds through marriage, parenthood, friendship or in our communities some things and people just fit. There’s companionship, support and overall awesomeness.
Kind of like cupcakes and frosting.
Because some things are just better together.
me and my best pairing, circa a long time ago
