If Frogs Had Wings


If Frogs Had Wings

     “If a frog had wings, he wouldn’t bump his butt.”

That was my dad’s favorite saying any time I wanted to do something that there wasn’t time for doing…

If I wanted a raise in my allowance…

If I wanted a friend to stay over on a night that apparently didn’t suit…

It was his way of saying, “No.”

I don’t think Dad ever said the word “No “to me in his life.

I do remember the many, many, many times (to infinity and beyond) that I was left wondering why and how this said frog got in the way of me living my life!

FYI: Yes, I know Wayne’s World had the same saying. I think they stole it from Dad!

I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
