When you are born “on the half shell,” literally, you really don’t have time to ponder life’s more esoteric topics.

All you know is everyone seems to want a piece of you, whether figuratively or otherwise.

So long as you are super-healthy and fit and feeling fine, it is a slam-dunk decision to spend the majority of the cold weather season fast asleep.

Getting your beauty rest now will ensure you look even more dapper and dashing when the sun comes back around next spring and the single lady box turtles along with it.

But sometimes it can be hard to tell exactly when it is time to wake up again.

For example, it might be cold-cold-cold-cold-cold-cold-cold-cold-cold…..and then WARM.

The temperature rises. Your temperature rises. The message gets delivered and your senses reboot and start to perk up again.

So you come out to check the lay of the land, have a look and a stretch, see what (and who) there is to be seen.

But nope, it’s just that bigger trickster, “southern winter,” playing a joke on you yet again.

Sometimes a rogue midwinter warm day will trick you into thinking it is lady box turtle season waaaay before the single ladies are actually up and about again. So you come out, have a look around, and then it’s back into your hay tunnel for some more restorative zzzz’s.
