    My frog escaped.. (I don't think it's coming back).

    A while back I started a thread about a pet beta fish that I got. I also got a small dwarf aquatic frog (only a little larger than my thumb nail), to share it's 12/12cm cube shaped bowl. The frog itself was one of those ones that is entirely aqautic, it's not one of those kinds of frogs that will ever just sit and chills on land. It didn't really get along too well with the beta, but I hooked them up with some aquatic plants in the bowl for him (or the fish) to be able to get some refuge from the other one. I really didn't know that this thing could crawl out of the water and escape from the cube.. I really would have liked to have witnessed this amazing feat.. but I missed it. Imagine that, to spend your entire existance inside a cube with a fiesty unfriendly fish, and if you escape - it is certain death. I am still quite impressed though, he was a risk taker.. I hope he was able to enjoy his freedom for what little time he had.

    The frog is telling you something.

    No the frog is not 'telling' me anything. The frog is dead.. unless it is 'undead'. But I'd probably just squish it if that were the case.

    If you look really,really hard at your life...and I mean between the lines, conscious and unconscious thoughts alike...I think you will find a subtle pattern. Within that pattern is the answer you seek.


    Now go.

    If you, as a frog had to witness that...and then suffer living with a BETA for chrissakes...would you cobain your way out of the situation? Probably. Yes.

    I've found, through my tomboyish ways of having many snakes, snapping turtles, etc when younger - that frogs are highly intelligent. You may think ole Hopper has a brain the size of a pinhead and all he can do is hang out and eat, well, you're wrong.

    I mean look at these all knowing little eyes. Bet he understands the word "blender"...

    Wonder if he ran off to become a froggy vigilante ... and if that's the case - I'd be sleeping with the light on. Just a suggestion ....

    I think that little guy could do a better job than that stupid caveman in the Geico commercials. Even better than the gecko.
