Nocturnal Amphibious Mission

Would you look at that beauty?

I almost squished her with my car a few weeks ago when I found her in my driveway. I say "her" because she was huge (about 5-6 inches long and 3-4 inches wide) and the sexual dimorphism in most amphibians and reptiles is size. She tried to scamper away, but I immediately scooped her up! She bloated and pissed all over me not unlike the way Rosie O'Donnell must respond to Trump! Being the treehugger that I am, it was my mission to calmly defy her protest and take her out to the "wild" subdivision culvert (cue "Born Free" soundtrack).


This weekend I found my dogs, Earl Grey and Muffin Top "playing" with something in the backyard! It was a smaller version of the whopper I had found previously, so I can assume that it was a charming little male out to get his "shorty". He was thinking to Muffin Top---"Shorty what's your sign?" But she, being the bitch that she is, just kept yapping and attempting to puncture him with her canines! I separated the two just in time. I knew the perfect girl for him! I gave him to my daughter to release in the same culvert because she has to learn to handle a few toads before she can find her prince.

Ha!If it is a metaphor, I always put "metaphor" in the list. Are you infurring that I'm a male toad?
