There is this commercial that I see occasionally, and the people are talking about things that just seem to go well together, such as peanut butter and jelly. The saleswoman gives an example of unicorns and glitter, and the other two people look at her like she is crazy. Now, my little one and I both think that unicorns and glitter make perfect sense as going together. In fact, sometimes we joke about it when we talk about things going together and will randomly blurt out "unicorns and glitter". This reminded me of a program that I saw where they had animals that formed unexpected bonds with other animals of different species. The friendships worked for these animals, although they were not necessarily viewed as "normal" by us humans. That lead me to wonder what other "unusual pairings" we might think are normal and natural while other people think they are strange or things that we might view as unusual that others think are perfectly normal. Do you have any examples to share?
