I Hear the Resounding FOMO

I wonder, do crickets ever feel peer pressure or FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)?

Because every year, there’s an evening where I hear a few of them sounding as dusk begins. Just a few. And I think, “Oh, it’s coming. In a couple weeks, we’ll soon be hearing crickets every night.”

And then the very next night, it’s so much more of them. They heard, and they came to the party.
