Living underneath your own custom shell is like carrying around a complete home gym.

All you have to do to get fit is stand up and sit down.

But while this brings with it certain multi-tasking advantages, in some circumstances it can also make navigation challenging.

Especially when you forget it is there.

For example, you might be resting comfortably inside your posh indoor She Shed when, out of the corner of your eye, you spy your large shell-less waitress heading in the direction of your favorite place.

The refrigerator.

You decide to join her….or at least half of you does.

Halfway out is still halfway in….at least when your goal is to get to the refrigerator!

Thanks to a timely assist, you finally navigate your way from “half out” to “all out” and enjoy a hearty lunch.

After which it is time to go back in….at least in theory.

With so many moving parts to keep track of, it is easy to forget a leg – or even a tail – when you are feeling snoozy after a hearty lunch!
