I’ve noticed that couples often begin to appear more and more alike over time, perhaps dressing in a similar style, or subconsciously picking up facial expressions, mannerisms, sayings and the like. While it might be that we are drawn to others who are similar to ourselves (including appearance to some degree), these nuances are only amplified with time spent together. Naturally, I’d assume that this applies to long-lasting friendships as well.
Among my many food quirks, perhaps the one that stands out the most is my unabashed love for oats. I would happily eat oatmeal for breakfast every day, and generally do; I have been known to “pregame” a brunch out with a small bowl of oatmeal, or eat it for dinner, in order to get my daily fix. Hell, I even list oatmeal as one of my interests on Facebook. I realize that most normal individuals do not share my oat fanaticism, and are not compelled to drop everything when a recipe combining oats and almonds (another top 10 favorite food*) pops up, but in this case you should.
