BLURB

It is warm outside today. Alpha-Flamingo struts confidently as he leads us on today's exquisite beach trip. He takes long, relaxed strides, giving us all a perfect view of his vascular, pulsating virulent, and muscular legs. There is no rush or discontentment in his movements, he knows that we will follow him anywhere, even if he takes us into the deepest pits of hell. We adore him and we feel safe, knowing someone will make decisions. Nothing will happen to us on his watch. We all know though that his watch won't last forever. We've had other leaders before him and we'll have others after. There are always those among out group who think they could do better, who muse that we should be going faster, or slower, or in another direction. They watch with jealous eyes and we watch them with curious ones. I am sure they will all have their chances soon enough. The number twos always dream of being number one, but number ones don't worry about that, that is what makes them number ones. [Ryan Nimmo & Carla Bisoli]
