Had a pretty epic realization on the way home from work today. Well, it felt pretty epic at the time, anyway.

I think it hit us both, Beth and I, that we're essentially twins. We look alike. (I don't know how exactly I never truly figured out how I'd look in the outer world, if I had my own body, but Beth came up behind me in the headspace today, turned me around, and she said it was like looking in a mirror. We're usually both up front at the same time so we don't get much chance to look at each other. :P ) We like the same books, the same tv shows. We feel like two pieces of a puzzle that just nestle together perfectly.

That's not to say I'm a carbon copy of her, or the other half to her whole. Good gods, no. The only electronics I've really figured out how to work are video game systems, while she's built computers. Beth doesn't really drink much, while if left to my own devices I could drain a bottle of chocolate wine in a night. I'm a much more sensual creature than she is. I'm louder. I've got an attitude. I don't take shit from anyone. (I mean, come on, I threatened to shove a My Little Pony where the sun don't shine on the husband when he gave me crap the other day) I like to be social, where she'd be happier just sitting at home all the time. I am the wolf, where she is the kitten.

But realizing that we are what we are together... makes things fit better. Feel better.
