I have never understood why some creatures hibernate during winter. Winter is the best time of year – the cool crisp air, the smell of pine trees on the breeze, the sting of Jack Frost nipping at your nose, the snow falling like a blanket around you. It cools my heart just to think about it. Why anyone would want to curl up and sleep through the entire season baffles me! The next time I see a bear, I should get the gumption up to ask. But for now, I will dream of hibernating through summer. That would be the best time to sleep through an entire season – the hot muggy air, the smell of sweat on the breeze, the sting of mosquitoes nipping at your nose, the sun rays melting your fur right off of you. Yes, I do believe that hibernating through summer would be a great idea to help pass the time.
Let the hibernation begin!
