I'm gonna be a bear

Monday, October 24, 2005

I nearly needed a defibrulator while watching last night's Game 2 of the World Series. It turned out all right, though, and the Sox showed just why playing as a valued member of a team is so much more important than being a superstar.

The Sox won, the Bears won and the Packers lost. A sports trifecta!! Now THAT'S a good day!

Anyway, I'm tired and not feeling so great, so today I'll give you a rest from my own wit and wisdom to share this fine tidbit from an unknown author:

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 mama 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 will have hairy legs and excess body fat.

Yup, gonna be a bear!!

Have a great day!
