A Lovely Bedtime Story

Once upon a time, Gianni brought his mommy a frog.

"See, Mama!" he said in excitement.

"Wow! Look at that!  A Frog!  In my living room!"

"I catch-ed it!" he said, proudly.

"Wow! Let's take the froggy back outside, ok, little man?"

Three minutes later...

Cora and Anna come in.

"Mom, Gianni squished his frog.  His legs are broken and his tongue is sticking out and he's not moving and he's squishy."

"Nice," says Mom. "Let's have some popsicles."

Ten minutes later Mom sees Gianni licking his fingers.

And remembers his frog.

And the frog juice.



  1. So, is he allergic to frogs or do you have another protein/slime you can add to the menu?

    The Prequel:

    Dad and the boy wonder are on the tractor mowing the grass. Gianni spots the aforementioned frog and saves it from the oncoming blades. Little froggie escapes one horrific demise only to become subject to another... irony?

  4. I will pet him and keep him and call him George...
