Except I would be the one jumping in the air, and then screaming bloody murder, of course.

Hahaha – we both jumped Rachel 🙂 the frog also did a pee as it jumped away – lol – but that bit didn’t fit in the wee poem.

Note, Dhyan – these wee poems are for you 🙂 based on your comments about standing on a frog.

only that horrible sticky slicky oily feeling is missing to make unable to sleep after a 9 words poem

It would give you a fright in the middle of the night. I am loving the frog theme right now!

It happened to me just the other day Selma, when I walked onto the verandah – but I didn’t squish him – he got away in a flash and I got a bit of a shock – haha.

Oh, this is so cute – no-one wants to tread on a frog in the dark! It’s terrible to tread on a poor frog, and it’s terrifying if it’s something! Oooooooo, scary!

It’s an interesting photo of the boys isn’t it bluebee – it’s like the frog is emitting its own energy!

I’m still laughing about the frog in the boot and now the frog in the dark…I see a novel in the offing.
January 8, 2011 at 9:12 am

Yay to froggies, though with these floods we are going to get lots of snakes and other critters too, and insects (lots of mosquitoes).
