Palinode: Did you notice that our laundry detergent looks different than normal?
Schmutzie: Yeah. The detergent in this bottle seems a little... um... darker than normal. Why? What do you think it looks like?
Palinode: It looks like hobo urine.
Schmutzie: Oh my god. That's exactly what I thought. [feels a flutter in her stomach]
Palinode: It really looks like someone who hasn't had a chance to drink water or bathe for a while came and took a leak in our laundry detergent.
Schmutzie: I know, right? It looks pretty disgusting.
Palinode: Why are you looking at me like that?
Schmutzie: [sighs with a resurgence of marital love and smiles] Oh, no reason.
As it turns out, I pair bond easily over the mutual likening of laundry detergent to hobo urine.
Stop looking at me like that. It's not like you haven't pair bonded over weird stuff, right?
