Same. But...different. You get my drift? I’m always the driver, I like being in control. She prefers the passenger seat, to see the waimai (外卖) racing and what not. Still, we find ways to amuse ourselves, from spotting triple fortune license plates to teasing passersby (yea we’re looking at you). Just smile and wave, a drink never hurts. There’s a theory in particle physics that presumes every fragment, bit, and piece in the universe has a doppelgänger, it’s called supersymmetry. While there’s no evidence to support this theory, is it really that surprising? Look around you, there’s symmetry everywhere. From Stag Beetles to reckless twins driving down South Huangpi Road. In fact, when Newton first discovered gravity, he realized that the force that pulls an apple from a Wu Tong tree (梧桐树) is the exact same that keeps the moon in orbit around the sun. It’s these invisible forces that pull us in all sorts of directions. Our advice? Simply...surrender. Lean in closer superpartner, we’re going for a ride!
