Contributed by Dave Calkins
I have a friend who was frog sitting a small ornamental firebelly toad
for another friend which lead to this story.
Clean out your sink and do up all dishes.
Make sure counters are clean.
Place frog tank in sink. When frog tank does not fit in sink, carefully
balance it across the sink.
Remove lid. Where is lid? How does lid come off? Shake tank to see how
lid comes off. Knock lid to floor.
Where is frog?
Check garbage disposal.
Do not use garbage disposal.
Do not frighten daycare children.
Do not let daycare children assist in frog search in garbage disposal.
Roll up a paper towel and slide it down into disposal carefully so as to
not frighten frog anymore than necessary.
Wait some more.
Push back rubber cover on disposal to see if frog is still inside.
Jump back wildly and scream as frog jumps up in your face.
Fall in heap on daycare children.
Grab paper towel and crouch down.
Leap (like frog), place paper towel on frog, scoop him up and return him
Replace spilled poopy frog water with fresh water.
Return tank to table.
Take Prozac and rest.
I died laughing when I read this and the writer said that I could post
this to you all, but it does raise an important issue when traveling, train
your frog sitters.
