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!"
