Matched set

P. sent me a recent photo taken of his family at their reunion. Of course there were cranky kids, a face or two mid-smile, but your eye was mostly drawn to his parents who wore matching outfits. I don't mean they wore similar shirts and pants...they were identical. "Oh, I didn't tell you that my parents always wear matching outfits when they go on vacation?" he said. No. This sort of detail I'd remember. I guess in the world of quirks, it's harmless. But where does a happy couple shop for this stuff? What sort of conversations take place? "Last year I had to wear that floral get-up and hated it, so this year I call stars and stripes!"

It could always be worse!
