Animals have a variety of ways of avoiding detection and staying out of harm. Chameleons camouflage. Deer run. Birds take to the air. My dog's ears go back and he slinks to his bed even if he's not the one in trouble. And the rabbit I saw this morning apparently believed that if he held perfectly still, bolt upright in the middle of a flat lawn, I wouldn't see him.

Maybe that would work for me in my cubicle. Maybe if I hold completely still, without a twitch, my boss won't see me...
