Are you a Peacock or a Puppy?



“Some animals are cunning and evil-disposed, as the fox; others, as the dog, are fierce, friendly, and fawning. Some are gentle and easily tamed, as the elephant; some are susceptible of shame, and watchful, as the goose. Some are jealous and fond of ornament, as the peacock.”         Aristotle

Dating styles vary from person to person.

Indeed, there are peacocks- everywhere like the packs of “High Glam Girls,” strutting, preying, showing off-  in an effort to be noticed. Lorelei was like that.

Her motto was “A girl has to eat.” She went out to dinner three times a week -usually with a different man. She kept a meticulous Excel spreadsheet on where she went, with whom and what she wore. It was almost full time job.

Her real job as a nanny, paid the bills while dining out saved her a lot of wampum. She rarely had to shop for groceries, as she had a small kennel of Doggy Bags from fabulous restaurants lining the shelves of her refrigerator.

The other nannys in the park were amazed by her fierce competitive nature. Lorelei bragged, loudly and often,  about her social life. Did she really go out with strange men – for dinner- and not dessert?

They often wondered if she was telling the truth.
