What I Saw Today...part 2

I'm not sure how well you can see what is in the picture, but it is the most recent shed of Kevin's snake, Slither. He is growing by leaps and bounds, not surprising the way he eats. I can't even remember how may times he has shed since he has been here, at least twice for every once my pythons have shed. I am struck by the fact that reptiles will have an outward show of growth beyond just growing. They are basically saying "I have outgrown myself and here is the proof". I wonder what it would be like if we shed like reptiles did. What would people think when they saw the bright shiny and soft new us after a shed? Would it cause us to realize just how much we've changed since the last time? Would we be more likely to look at ourselves and see if there is any inner 'skin' that we've outgrown and need to shed? Or would we just continue as usual going about our daily business not changing a thing about ourselves because "it's worked well enough so far".
If only it was that easy to shed our bad habits, habits that we've outgrown like a snake sheds the skin it outgrew.
