Return of the frog in my shoe

So, I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while. Since at least June 27, when I found my friend the frog hiding in my shoe again, on the first workday morning of my vacation. That morning, I shook my shoe as I always do, in case there’s something cold blooded in it. Then I felt the frog, and I grabbed my camera and snapped the following shots …

So, the frog jumps out.

"Aww, what the hell, I was dreaming of fireflies."

Then the frog pretends to be a shoe as he sizes me up.

"You can't see me. I'm a shoe. You don't look that tough, anyway."

Assuming I'm sympathetic to his slumber, he hops back on the shoe.

"You really don't mind if I go back to sleep? Don't mind if I do ..."

"Wait a minute," he thinks, "Did you just take my photo? Look, man: This is my shoe."

"That's right. This is my shoe."

"And as such, I'm gonna reclaim it."

"And as such, I'm gonna reclaim it."

"It's all mine."

"It's all mine."

"Seriously. Whatcha gonna do about it?"

"Seriously. Whatcha gonna do about it?"

"See. Mine. All Mine. Goodnight."

"See. Mine. All Mine. Goodnight."

"That's what I'm talking about. A nice sleep in my shoe home. Zzzzz..."

"That's what I'm talking about. A nice sleep in my shoe home. Zzzzz..."

"Awww, c'mon ... why'd you go and shake me out of the shoe again?"

"Awww, c'mon ... why'd you go and shake me out of the shoe again?"

"Does this look like the face of a happy frog? I'll get you next time."

"Does this look like the face of a happy frog? I'll get you next time."


And then, on July 10, as I was preparing to mow the lawn early in the morning before it got too hot, I found the frog in my shoe again. So I grabbed my good camera and captured the following …

"You'll never find me over here, where I blend in perfectly."

"You'll never find me over here, where I blend in perfectly."

"Bring it."

"Bring it."

"You got a lot of nerve waking me up like that, pal."

"You got a lot of nerve waking me up like that, pal."

"That's right, you best step back."

"That's right, you best step back."

"Yes, you are being shunned."

"Yes, you are being shunned."
