Day 207: Household Dominance

When you share a household with several other beings, maintaining household dominance can quickly become a full time job.

While you happen to know that having feathers automatically places you at the tip-top of the pecking order, some other beings show less natural aptitude for grasping their own proper place below you.

The best way to remind them, of course, is to stand right on top of them while shrieking and extending your wings (thus offering both “visual” and “auditory” learners the right type of reinforcing instruction).

In a pinch, you can also use a representational likeness as part of traditional “classroom style” education.

And now I’ll add in a bit more movement and extend my wings further (after all, I do look especially cute with my wings out).
And some more movement - I can tell the students are really into the lesson now, because they are flashing those small rectangular devices at me.

Okay, Mom - now that the lesson is over we can let the press in to take a few media shots.
