Hovering

Consumer experts worry sellers now with words like grazing they use to describe the surface buyer who selects somehow from all the products offered to our tribe only a few. A nightmare worse - the threat proposed by those cocooning. They, it seems, have settled in their family rooms to let the world go by, content. They have no dreams for more possessions. I suggest the term of hovering to be applied to those beyond the picky cows, not yet the worms wrapped in their blankets. Everybody knows the road from never- runs to always- bent to go by somewhat- and not quite-content.
