Bad Days
But on bad days, when everyone ignores his presence, nobody cares a whit for his genius or seeks his favor, the Rooster grows cranky, fussy, vain, self-involved, blindly egotistical, over-zealous, pretentious, materialistic, grabby, high-handed, cynical, mercurial, self-absorbed and persnickety.
