Six more weeks of winter or an early spring?
It’s February 2nd and we all know what that means.
Yep, we all gather to see if a very large rodent, named Puxatony Phil, sticks his head out of his perfectly warm place of hibernation to check things out and decide how long he’ll sleep before it’s nice outside.
I’ve never quite understood this tradition, but it’s fun and relatively harmless, unless you’re the groundhog. Here he is, minding his own business and dreaming about hot, sexy groundhogs when someone comes knocking on your door, expecting you to get out of bed and stick your face out into the cold, brutal weather just to be asked when you think winter will end.
Quite honestly, I’m impressed that this guy hasn’t bitten anyone yet. I’d be furious to have some great sleep be interrupted by a creature with opposable thumbs who’s more than capable of turning on the TV or reading a daily weather blog to ask me about winter. Considering the blizzard they should be getting Tuesday morning, I’d say it’s best for everyone to stay inside and watch the movie.
Enjoy Groundhog Day everybody!
