"This is tough. I can’t tell the difference between Cody Stiles and Cousin Blaze. We need an expert for this. Someone reputed to be a 'gold-digger' with the sharp eye of a nanny who can spot the 5 or even 6 differences between the two. But where will we find such a person?"
Those who don't read the comic strip Apartment 3-G may be confused. This is Cody Stiles:
And this is LuAnn's cousin Blaze:
I can understand the confusion -- same wardrobe ... similar hair ... they even both have Western or cowboy-themed names (Buffalo Bill Cody, Blaze-ing Saddles). However, there are a few telltale ways to tell Cody and Blaze apart.
3) Jackets: Cody's is acid-washed denim. Blaze, having learned from all the New York fashionistas in the Apartment 3-G universe, appears to be wearing some kind of nasty poly blend.
Update 7/29/09 -- I feel rather naive that I didn't know about hanky code when I first wrote this, but it appears I wasn't too far off. Blaze's neckerchief might not have a special meaning, since the knot is centered, and thus could lead to some confusion, but since Cody knots on the right (his left, our right? Not sure, but I think that's how it would work), he is clearly a bottom.
P.S. -- I still can't believe that I didn't know hanky code was used to indicate orientation/preferred sex acts, and I made up something that was true.
