Why does George tell Lennie to keep his distance from Curley and his wife?
'Seems like Curley is cockier'n ever since he got married.'
In addition, Curley's wife is described by Candy as 'a tart'. George sees the danger as well when him and Lennie see her for the first time-
'She's purty,' said Lennie defensively.
Her bright clothes and ostrich fether shoes would be a magnet to Lennie who loves to 'pet soft things', as he did in Weed, to their cost.
