5. Peer Pressure
The next day I was on my laptop at home, working against a deadline. The dog curled up next to me on the couch. She put her head on my leg, went to sleep.
“You’re a bad influence,” I said to her as I scratched her ear. “I gotta finish this today.” A sunbeam hit the back of the couch. Our cat stretched out behind me, warm against my neck. He purred briefly before going to sleep. Before I knew it, I was asleep as well. Peer pressure can be subtle and pleasant.
Today I will beware of peer pressure in any form.
