Fascinating.

Such as small town life.

And reading "Dictionary of Farm Animal Behavior."

It could be called "Dictionary of Human Behavior."

For example:

Coyness.

Courtship.

Cough Reflex.

Boss Animal.

Bloat.

Gas.

Maybe we aren’t so far from animals after all.

Gathering Area.

Whining.

Group Odor.

Mad Cow Disease.

(Otherwise known as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy.)

Try saying that three times real fast.

The fascinating list goes on:

Honeymoon Flight.

Head Scratching.

Harem.

Foster Mother.

Balking.

Bawl.

Welcome to the Animal Kingdom.

Here we have Witch’s Milk.

Waltzing Chickens.

Bar Biting.

Free Going.

Winking.

Dishing.

Dipping.

Stall Kicking.

(Possibly related to tire kicking.)

What fun!

And to wrap this up:

There is Thumping.

Tupping.

Tongue Lolling.

Wither Nibbling.

Pipping.

Kinky-Back.

Horning.

(What a wonderful world.)

High-Stepping.

Beak Trimming.

Mortar-Eating.

And even a Bee Dance.

Nope, never a dull moment in the barnyard.

Nor in a small town.

That’s Mason.
