Are we writing this down..?

there is a tendency to locally optimize (per feature, per screen) interactions and information.
At a higher level, as an example, a few months ago
I walked into the middle of a sentence
And I knew I was damned.

Articulate my rationale:
the point of the whole story is...
the peacock is best known for the male's
extravagant tail, which it displays as
part of courtship.

The male is called a peacock,
the female a peahen.
Although commonly used, peacock is
an incorrect term to refer to both sexes.

As I listen to my messages,
fearing what might be on the other end,
she asks me how I feel about being called a peacock,
and I think to myself: to know me is to love me.
