Brrrr!!! It's cold. It's been cold. It's going to stay cold. So, where have I been? Hibernating, where else? Seemed like the only reasonable approach to this weather.
GONNA BE A BEAR
In this life I'm a woman. In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear. when you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.
Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that, too.
When you're a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.
If you're a momma bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them, too. I could deal with that.
If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat. Yup, gonna be a bear !
Seriously, folks, can we choose our next incarnation?
While I'd love to continue to hibernate through about mid-March, it looks like I've had to open the eyes, stretch it out, and return to my normal daily routine. So, what's new?
