Attention

'He gets all the attention. Wherever he goes, people look!' said the white rabbit.
'He's a red fox,' said the dishevelled little owl. 'It goes with the territory.'
'The other day, someone wanted to scratch his ears. No one ever scratches my ears.' said the white rabbit.
'Would you like someone to scratch your ears?' asked the dishevelled little owl.
(Pause.)
'Not really,' said the white rabbit.
'Would you enjoy the kind of attention the red fox gets every day?' asked the dishevelled little owl.
'Not really,' said the white rabbit. 'I couldn't think straight if I did.'
(Pause.)
'There you are, then,' said the dishevelled little owl.
