Going to be a Bear In this life I am a woman. In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear. When you are a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for 6 months. I could deal with that. Before you hibernate, you are supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could also deal with that. When you are a girl bear, you give birth to children while you are sleeping and wake to partially grown cubs. Then again, I could deal with that. If you are a mommy bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat at anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get ut of line, you swat them too. I could also deal wit that. If you are a bear, your mate expects you to wake up growling. He also expects you will have hairly legs and excess body fat. Definitely I want to be a bear.
