I understand the concept behind this saying but if you’ve ever taken peas out of a pod you will notice that the peas are rarely ever the same. It makes me curious as to why the saying means that when two people are alike they’re like “two peas in a pod”
Maybe it means that because the peas were in the same place they must be alike, however if this concept is applied to twins who are the closest it comes to being “two peas” in a “pod” it doesn’t apply there either because twins are rarely ever alike, even if identical.
It’s odd how people come up with such sayings and odder still when it actually become a “thing”.
Alas, it is what it is. 🙂
