What I Didn't Know

I'm always discovering new things. Last night, I learned the neighborhood dog park has a social caste system to rival the Hindus'. There's the retrivers, labs, and big dogs. They participate in group-fetching, where they vie for the same tennis ball. There's a little-dog clique that congregates away from the big-dog whirling dervish up on the small hill. Their owners seem to know each other, and chat while the dogs sit and look pretty. And there are the parents with children who keep their distance in the playground area.

The whole thing kind of reminds me of high school. It's a good primer for tonight's 10-year high school reunion.
