The word ‘feral’ doesn’t apply only to animals

The word “feral” means becoming undomesticated and wild. There are feral cats on Maui. There are also very wild pigs and feral deer. And, of late, we have feral chickens.

How about holiday shoppers who go wild at the mall? And don’t people at rock concerts also go wild?

We see frantic travelers grabbing for their baggage at the airport. Or shoving others aside trying to get their huge carry-ons down from the overhead on the plane.

And don’t we go feral when we are trying to get a parking place?

There is a little feral in all of us.
