     The first thing Wanda noticed was how much time the males spent preening themselves, then strutting around in front of the females. They also made a lot of noise, but she wasn't sure if it was to communicate with a potential mate or as a threat to other males. The only thing that seemed to interrupt the non-stop courtship ritual was when the males needed to get a drink.
    Her cohort, Janice, sat down beside her and asked, "So, what do you make of all this?"
    Wanda just shook her head and replied, "I don't think the nightclub scene is for me."

  4. "I know what you mean Wanda," replied Janice. "That's why I'm glad I'm a plain brown peahen, because if we were another animal we'd be the ones spending/wasting our time trying to attract a mate,"

    1. Interesting - I was thinking about that very thing (pea hen) when I was writing this!
