They get a new car and they want to make sure every single person they know — or almost know, or might know in the future — see it. Most of us like to show off new stuff, but we have limits. We don’t show off everything and we don’t do it all the time.
I think of those who flaunt as people who wear and use bright colors. I’m not one of the them. I get uncomfortable if too many people notice me. I’ve stopped wearing most large jewelry because I don’t want people to see it or comment on it.
It’s just a thing. To each his own, but that isn’t my way.
But I do like having work I write read. Does that count? And having pictures looked at, too. That’s sort of flaunt-ish, right?
