On such a balmy day as today I am given to believe there is something to this Groundhog shadow thing.
Kudos to Punxsutawny Phil, giving credibility to rodent meteorologists since 1887. Of course, since the average lifespan of a groundhog is about ten years, I’m actually more impressed that he also has the secret to eternal life. Props.
And Phil has got me thinking that maybe I should be looking to the animal world in areas of my life other than the weather. Here’s what I have so far:
Philosophy & Meditation
Old School Yoda
Investment & Financial Advice
And, last but not least:
Life is better when you listen to the wisdom of the wild. But, so help me god, Phil, if you are wrong about this early spring I will hunt you down and make you into a groundhog-skin hat.
