*************************************************************

I am a Frog……

How do I know I am a frog…I just KNOW……I come from a long line of frogs…so I know……..I am Green…..with legs…lol not to big.. not to small….just the right size……..I jump only when I absolutely Have to……therefore I am a frog……a Lady Frog……..
I have a delightful pond at the end of a long garden…just the place for a Lady frog….cool…..shady…….plenty of rocks to sit and sunbake…….and plenty of weeds to lay my babies amongst……..and I do just that on a regular basis………..I have to because there are some nasty humans that live in the house up away’s from my pond that appear to delight in stealing my babies and keeping them in Jars….JARS no less….how humiliating…
We were never meant t live in a jar..!! But in a pond…..free to do our thing
Whenever we feel the Urge or need……….without interference from HUMANS…..we have been doing it for centuries and need no assistance…..
There are many things against being a frog in a pond……the yukky stuff that gets into our water……..chemicals……plastic bags……lumps of wood…all sorts of bits all meant to make life difficult for us…………
Now I have several neighbours that I get along with…a couple of lovely ladies that help me keep our space tidy… we look after each others babies when we have them…There’s “Legs”…a Lovely girl who tries to grab all the good looking Males when they come calling…….she thinks she’s a great one but never really produces many babies…….she thinks its Quality not quantity that keeps our pond filled………Then there’s Bouncer sooo
Fat she couldn’t jump now if she tried……..she just like to sit around grumbling at the goings on of the others in the grasses…lol bit of a perve that one…..she prefers to watch rather than produce anything worthwhile to contribute to the stocking of our village……..
Across the way we have the “Groper” HE is the devil incarnate at mating time.. So big he almost kills us ladies……..and thinks he is the best thing to happen to the pond since fish food…………..and ohh yes we have fish……
Goldfish….all colours…and shapes……have to watch out when they are feeding…they love nibbling on unsuspecting frog legs…..and they are not even French………..
Near the Groper is Romeo…….a slim rather jaunty guy….who serenades us beautifully but is a bit slow so he usually misses out and the groper jumps in stealing the serenaded one by the time Romeo gets around to the action…but he does get there occasionally…..usually when the Groper is taking a break…….there are others around but nothing much to speak of and we all get along fine………well most times………
Gropers getting agitated…….must be near that time again…..Legs will be flapping her bits soon…….she’s welcome……..I’m having time out…..
Not interested not now anyway……..so she can flap all she wants….I must be getting past it…just can’t see anything interesting in being Flattened by a huge green slimy thing suddenly landing on you from a great height…..knocking the wind out of you….pinning you to the dirt for a few minutes of what..?? Sexual arousal…..!! Groper jumps at the first craok
And WE never get the chance to get our juices flowing…before its all over ……then THEN we have to put up with all the wannabe’s……..the young ones the try hards…ohh please…enough already………don’t even get the chance to get our breaths back and here they come……..ohhhh boy……..there has to be more to life than this………don’t ask for much…..just a couple of weeks in a nice big pond..filled with beautifull water lilly’s……..huge leaves to sit on and bask in the sun…..plenty of flies and other yummy things to eat….and NO Groper…………NO GROPER…..heaven pure Froggy Heaven……..Dreams…that’s what it is…..even Frogs can Dream………whats that croaking……..NOOO not
Now…ohhh god it’s the Groper……Legs nowhere to be seen…where is that girl when you want her…………I swear if that thing comes near me today I’ll turn myself into a preying mantis and EAT him……….
WHY OHH WHY cant they change that myth…and have a Beautiful Young Man come along and kiss a Lady frog thereby turning HER into a gorgeously Beautiful Woman……..ohh my,,….,if only……OK time for action……need to find somewhere to hide………waters no good he floats………weeds no good he’ll spot me there……….ok Girl get moving…..start jumping……over there… a tree……….get yourself up that
He’s too fat to make it……….you’ll just have to take your chances with the birds………ohhh my I’ll have to slim down a bit……..this jumping is getting too much………QUICK !! QUICK !!……his croak is getting closer………..ohh my…. one more jump and I should be on that tree…that’s it put some effort into it…….QUICK..!!!…….ohhh safe….may need to go a bit higher….bit exposed here…hmmmm………there he is….the Groper I can see him down there…looking around…croaking….
If I don’t move he may not see me………shhhh…..no noise…….Ohh my God theres a Bird circling over head………sheeesh get rid of one problem only to get another………good the birds flying off…….aggghhhh great…
EEEKKKK !!! There’s legs……..Gropers got his eye on her….ohhh no…..
Gropers angry he’ll flatten her……she’s a pain but…poor Legs cant have her squashed all over the place……and she does come in useful sometimes……..ohhh god there he goes again croaking his head off…..he spotted her..!!!!……..OHHHH he’s gonna do it..ohhh no…he’s getting ready for a jump..ohhhh NOOO……best I get down there and quick……
But it’s a long way down………ok nothing for it……..here we go……JUMP…..heck I’m flying…!!!!!……..NOOOOOO I’m heading straight for Groper…OHHHH sheesh……..K…..THUMP………whoooosh
Ohhh boy at least he’s soft to land on…….ohhh Dear….. legs I croak LEGS come help me…….just knocked the wind right out of me…..help quick……….Gropers knocked out……..quick before he wakes up….LEGGGGGSSSS……..LEEEEEEEGGGGGGGSSSSS…… to late
She’s sitting there flapping her bits at Romeo……..arrrrggghhhh Groper get OFF me you great Toad………I’m not in the mood………GET OFF I SAID……..any minute now I am going to turn around and EAT YOU..!!
GROPER………GROPPPERRRRRR……GRO……………ohh my……….ok……..ok……….ya got what ya wanted NOW GET OFF …….G E T O F F………..you great slimy toad I said GET OFF…..
that’s it……now GO…….GO AWAY………..GET LOST……..
Ohhh boy I’ll just make my way to the water…..have a rest…….catch some flies………..and just DREAM of that lake with the Lily pads….ohhh my……….Something is going to have to be done about that Groper…..ohh my the water is so nice………plenty of flies today…..ahhh that’s better
Who’d be a Frog……….maybe I could be a toad next time……..anything ANYTHING but a frog in this pond………….I’ll just have a nap……..getting too old for all this nonsense…….hmmmm ahhh hummmmm that’s it………….sleep………………..
