Rooster’s Love

Richard had studied philosophy in college, a fact that would go a long way toward explaining his post-college career, first as a chicken rancher, than later as a stand-up comedian. It would also explain his familiarity with the pre-Socratic philosophers. Lola too, had studied philosophy in college, a fact that would explain her excitement about finding Richard’s ad in the on-line personals. Nothing of course, could even come close to explaining Lola’s romantic interest in a man who showed up for their first date wearing a Rooster outfit and asking silly questions about which came first, the chicken or the egg. Unless of course, there was something more to Richard, than immediately met one’s eye. Evidently, Lola felt that there had been something more to Richard, even if he did refuse to remove his Rooster costume when they had first made love.
