keep the woolies and galoshes handy

Punxsuwatawney Phil, the "official" groundhog, did not see his shadow outside of Pittsburgh (though he was reportedly looking for a phone so he could call his bookie and lay a bet on the Super Bowl).

Here in Portland, though, the sun is shining and the day promises to be cold and bright. With temperatures hovering at around 29 degrees this morning, I cut to the chase and simply invited my shadow in for breakfast.

I was wondering what shadows have for breakfast. They stay so slim, I might be smart to emulate their eating habits..

Having a Groundhog Day birthday, I have performed this ritual since I was about six years old. So far, the shadow's most popular choice has been Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch cereal; though on occasion it was open to scrambled eggs and toast.

I think the slenderizing is achieved through standing in exactly the right place in the driveway.
