From the Burrow: Hard-ly Working   Leave a comment

The men say this is ‘labor day’ and it’s really three days. I don’t know what a laborday is, but it sounds like a lot of work, with all the laboring and all, so maybe the men need three days to do all the work that would usually take one day. Groundhoggy day is only one day (but I’ve heard most of it is in the morning), and marmots don’t have any day at all so it’s not fair that laboringday has three days. It still sounds like a lot of work to me.

Laboringday or not, it’s too hot to do work and if the men knew better they would rest and not work, no matter what day it is. I’m going to rest in the shade and if anyone else wants to work too bad for them. Why men want to work when it’s hot isn’t for me to know, but men do a lot of things that don’t make sense. Some men think the only thing marmots do is rest, when they see us sitting on rocks in the sun or making smallish burrows biggish or biggish burrows smallish or eating flowers that just happen to be there and no one else is eating them, but all that’s hard work. For a marmot. – Michonne

This marmot – no relation, that I know of – might look like she's resting, but really she's practicing the 'think like a rock and you will be the rock' concentration all marmots must learn. It's harder than it looks.
