TRAVELLER ZOO – Puberta insatiata


Identifiable by a shuffling gait, designer sneakers, rhythmic hiss escaping from earplugs and fingers tapping at phone screen. Pubertae may appear solitary, though closer inspection often reveals related adults walking ten paces ahead.

Identifying call: ‘Why did you bring us here, Dad? What’s so good about Florence?’
