Conversation with a Frog

The other day, I took my daughter to a new frozen yogurt place.  In front of the store, was a person in a frog costume. (The name of the place has something to do with a frog.)  Since I'm a little crazy, I struck up a conversation with this individual.  Here's how it went:

Me:  "It's like 95 degrees out here.  You must be roasting!"

Frog:  *Big nod*  (I was surprised his head didn't fall off.)

Me:  "You should really go inside and cool off.  A little frozen yogurt might be nice, too."

Frog:  *Another nod.  Then a shrug.*

Me:  "I'm going to get myself some ."

Frog:  *Thumbs up sign*

I went inside and got two cups of frozen yogurt - one for me and one for my daughter.

I came back out and resumed my conversation.

Me:  "See, you're doing such a good job of advertising, that I got some.  It's good!"

Frog:  *Claps hands*

Me:  "Do you want some?"

Frog:  *Shakes head*

Me:  "Okay.  See ya.  Have a nice day!"

Frog:  *Waves bye*

Meanwhile, my daughter was trying to hide, because of course I was embarrassing her.

"Mom," she said when I was done.  "Didn't your mom ever tell you not to talk to strangers?"

I nodded.  "Yes.  But she didn't say anything about frogs!"

    1. Yeah. It would've been strange to hear a voice coming out of that costume!

  2. Very true! Unless he was a strange frog. Wonder if he eventually passed out?

  4. You remind me of a cousin who can strike up a conversation with anyone and sometimes even talks to objects just to make his grandchildren laugh.

  5. I've embarrassed my grandchildren many a time in the past by going down a child's slide in the park. I enjoyed reading about your conversation with the frog.......and why not?

    Love,

    2. I run with scissors, too. I play with sharp pencils, not heeding the rule "It's all fun and games until somebody's eye gets poked out." I poke out eyes willy-nilly.

  7. Frogs totally don't count as strangers. Animal kindness and all that.

  10. The frog wasn't very sociable. I think Kermit would have had something to say. D

    1. I don't think people in costumes are allowed to talk. He was pretty sociable for a non-talking creature!

  11. Did you kiss him to check if he turned into a Prince?
