Echoes of Incompatibility

One of my former boyfriends had a very distinctive walk. I don't mean distinctive awesome. I mean distinctive yuck. I would see him in the background of a film or television show and know it was him because of that weird gait. Even on a show like Hunter, which I never watched.

I am watching Defending Your Life, and I noticed Albert Brooks has a similar style of stroll. It's possible it's just because of the outfit and the little white slippers, but it looks a lot like my ex-boyfriend's walk, and it makes me wrinkle my nose. It's a shame, too, because I have loved Albert Brooks for many years, and now all of a sudden it seems that I wouldn't be able to stand the sight of him if we ever went out or walked somewhere.
