For beings who are naturally quite pretty and photogenic, “shinier” is always better.
However, even when you are very shiny and reflective, it is just common courtesy to knock first before entering.
Failure to complete this necessary social formality can result in a slightly (much) less friendly reception than you had hoped for.
Hello there. You are very shiny and reflective. But I didn’t hear you knock.
Fess up. You know you didn’t knock.
Now might be a good time to go back outside and knock.
You’re still here. Ah – maybe you are more of a “visual learner.”
Here, let me demonstrate.
I call this maneuver “Go ahead and make my day.”
I then add the hiss and open beak for emphasis.
And don’t come back until you knock first!
I know, Mom. It was very shiny….but it didn’t knock.
