While the past few months have been marked by great upheaval, some aspects of life remain unchanged: The sun still rises and sets, elected officials continue to drag their feet on enacting meaningful change, and Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck are still performing a daily strut around their Santa Monica neighborhood for the paparazzi.

Based on photos of their routine dog-walk yesterday, it seems this inseparable celebrity couple has not yet tired of spending every waking hour together. Armas, who wore some sort of poncho situation, appeared to be in high spirits while carrying a neon-green baggie of dog poop; Affleck, whom I suspect has paid another visit to hairstylist Armas, held a dog leash in each hand. Per usual, they engaged in some light PDA, and even shared some “big laughs.”

The only sign of distress was the grimace plastered across Affleck’s face, which resembles the expression one might make after taking a shot of well tequila or biting into an unbearably spicy chicken wing. However, if I had to guess, I’d say that Affleck’s clenched jaw isn’t indicative of any relationship strife, and is more likely the result of caffeine deprivation. After all, it’s a rarity to spot him in the wild without a bucket of coffee-flavored milk from Dunkin’. So that troubled expression he’s making? That’s simply a man who has gotta have his java.
