For beings who are lucky enough to be born with shells, the structures commonly known as “doors” are largely superfluous.

Want to go in? Just pull all your (very cute) appendages inside you and you are in.

Ready to come back out? Just stick out your (precious and perfect) arms, tail and head and you are out.

No doors required.

Yet there are some potentially good things about doors.

For starters, your large shell-less assistant gets very excited when you go in or come out of one.

Sometimes she waits for hours in front of your personal door (every flock member gets at least one – odd, but there you have it) just to see you come out of it.

When you finally do, after snapping one or a thousand pictures and taking copious video footage of the big event, she often likes to celebrate with snacks.

Now this you can get behind.

Or in front of.

Or wherever you need to be so you are first in line for the celebratory victuals.

A very cute being with a shell makes sure she is first in line for celebratory snacks on the occasion of (once again) exiting through her personal tortoise door.

And we love it. And you tell us you love it. Yay!

But if you would like to “pass the waffles” (or the mealworms, or the salmon) and gift your favorite flock member with a tasty treat, our beaks are wide open and grateful! 🙂
