Why state the obvious? Because we tend to forget it too often; like I did this winter. That sad state of affairs is no longer though; in the last few days, as spring started flirting with us, I couldn't help but notice the sharp change in interacting behaviors between members of the homo sapient species.
First, females seem to have noticed the existence of males, and are paying much closer attention to them. True, I always get noticed (being an alpha male is hard business), but in the last days even beta males are being considered with renewed attention.
Second, females are sending subliminal signals, in the form of all sort of synthetic pheromones (of the type of Channel 5 and others), displaying reproductive capacities (thanks to La Senza and its push-up bras products), and sharply increasing the competition factor; co-operation is no longer the mot d'ordre, its every female for herself now.
Finally, males seem to be suffering from a massive outbreak of neck injuries, and arriving an hour late at the office or in class in the mornings is understood to be right on time. The Thursday night tradition of "taking a beer with the boys, honey", translated as going to the strip, has been temporarily suspended, and shopping sprees and nagging seem to have no negative impact anymore.
It is pleasant to see that thousands of years of influence from various order-inducing and civilization-building institutions hasn't managed to kill the essence of what makes us human.
Unless I am dearly mistaken and should have taken the red pill instead of the blue one the other day.
