A Story About Hootgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
With an apology to Hoot in advance.
Seems Hoot was walking alongside a pond one day when he heard "Pssss, mister." Hoot looked around but didn't seen anyone. After a couple of "Pssss's" Hoot looked down to see a frog doing it. Hoot said, "May I help you?" Frog said, "You certainly can. You see I am really a young, beautiful, long-haired blond princess who was turned into a frog by a wicked witch. All you have to do is give me a kiss to restore by human form and, if you do, I will be yours forever." Hoot thought about it for a little bit, reached down, picked up the frog and put it into his pocket.
Frog said, "Mister, perhaps you didn't understand me. I am really a young, beautiful, long-haired blond princess who was turned into a frog by a wicked which. If you will just kiss me and turn me back into human form, not only will I be yours forever but I will do anything, and I mean anything, you want."
Hoot said, "Oh sure, I heard you fine. It's just at my age I rather have a talking frog."

Hey Ken! Actually there has been an update that you're probably not aware of--although it's not recent by any means. The FIRST frog was supposed to be a blonde but it jumped back in the water. I reached to retrieve it and got another one by mistake. Immediately upon puttin a big smak on it's little lips--WHAMO! A beautiful REDHEADED young lady. She promised the same thing as the blonde too. I cifer'd on it a spell and figgered I needed a housekeeper, cook, life's partner and wife and also the mother of my children. Guess what! After 35 years I still have'r around and she's still beautiful! I've found out over the years that I don't know everything but I do know one thing-- "Redheads are smart"! Good yarn Ken and funny!
