Peas in a Pod

An early fall walk reveals a hint of change in the local flora and fauna. In the photo below you see a large pod I found on the greenbelt along the Boise river. Holding it in my hand, the expression “peas in a pod” came to mind. When I got home, I carefully opened it to see how many “peas” the pod contained.

The expression “peas in a pod” alludes to the seeds in a pod that bear a close resemblance to each other. Sure enough, the “peas” in the pod I found are like identical triplets!

And while many of us look similar to our family members, it’s been said that each of us has a doppelgänger — a non-biological twin.

I’ve been told on numerous occasions that I look like Peter Pan (not kidding), especially as portrayed by Mary Martin.

Who have you been told that you look like?
