    bear burrito vs. bear truffle?

    A new member with a screen name of "bearpinata" got me thinking about the pet names we have for hammocks - like "bear burrito", and that they exist because of the incorrect notion that we're somehow "exposed" to the "wild" unlike being in a tent. Hogwash!

    So, was thinking about turning the tables and coming up with similar pet names for ground-dwelling shelters...

    bear truffle
    coyote fire hydrant

    ...I'm sure we can come up with some really good ones!

    Bear calzone? Bear hot pocket?

    Reminds me of the old Werther's candy commercial where the guy says "I had a bit of trouble unwrapping that shiny golden wrapper, but I'll never forget that first taste!"

    Sometimes I camp with bikers, some have tents some don't. When they talk of camping it's always "sleep in the dirt".

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Excerpt from a poem by Amy Carmichael
    Missionary to orphans in India.
    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.
