"I am not a pretty girl/ that is not what I do. I ain't no damsel in distress,/ and I don't need to be rescued..." Ani Difranco

This is what's known in our house as "mouth sparring." Two dogs, usually Marley and Karma (pictured here) act like they're going to attack each other in play. They use their mouths like two people in a fencing match. They rarely ever even touch their teeth to the other one's body. They just act. It's done very quickly, so to get a photo shot of it is pretty rare. :-)

Mouth sparring exists in the human world as well, only instead of playing with teeth barred, we tend to throw passive aggressive barbs that really do hurt.

You are so convinced of your infallibility, of yourself as the "expert" and that I need to be taught that you do not stop to consider what you've not considered. Maybe you should open your mind.

Things I deplore: egos. Materialism. Sexism. Stereotypes. Politics. Cattiness. Selfishness. Jealousy. Constraint. Micromanagement.
