Ground Hog Day

Being a ground hog wasn’t a bad job; you only had to work one day a year and sleep close to half a year in hibernation (or was that estivation?)  Luigi wondered why, after years–in fact, generations–of loyal service, they couldn’t send the ground hogs to Florida and Disney World for at least part of the winter.  No matter what kind of fancy mattress you have, you do get some cramps and kinks in your back after the first month or so of hibernation (or was that estivation?)  And who wouldn’t want to see Goofy? . . . .  David, Sf.G.
