Hibernation

The times they are a changing, the clocks go back next week and already the onslaught of autumn is having it's usual effects on me. I just can't stop yawning lately.

I am convinced I should be a person that hibernates, as to all intents and purposes I am pretty useless in the winter.

Wouldn't that be weird? If we could just lie down and go to sleep... and stay there till spring. One major flaw in this is that I'd miss my birthday (which ominously draws near as we approach November); we would also miss Christmas... but then it's held at the wrong time of year any way... I'm all for moving it!

The Queen isn't the only person to have two birthdays... Jesus does too!

I will endeavour to stay with you all as I prop my eyes open with matchsticks.

Mind you it's not a good idea to doze off for long periods of time... God gets ideas... you might wake and find yourself with an ache in your side... and a brand new wife (and then after a short while in her presence... an ache in your ear). You only need look in Genesis:

The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

I dunno... maybe that's not such a bad fate after all!
