You know how some things make you smile. Well, this gal makes me laugh out loud every time I see her.
Meet Frogina. I love this frog. She lived at my parent’s house for a while, and now she lives with me.
To me, she is the model of how to enjoy summer. Just hanging out, keepin’ cool, being cool.
Here’s a girl who loves life and is comfortable in her green skin. She’s not worried about her slight potbelly; she thinks she looks hot in her yellow bikini.
Frogina knows how to accessorize with polka dot framed glasses and a few flowers tucked behind her ear.
And the flower she’s holding? That’s for her sweetie when he hops on by.
If you were hanging out with Frogina, you wouldn’t hear anything about diets. She’d be the first in line to grab a large mint chocolate chip gelato and enjoy every cool bite of it. Join me on the deck, she’d say, to share a lovely bottle of white wine. She’d treat herself to french fries smothered in ketchup while she walked down the beach. And Frogina would never, ever, pass up creamy chocolate fudge with nuts.
Remember the Beach Boys lyrics, “She’ll have fun, fun, fun ’til her Daddy takes the t-bird away.” Her t-bird gone? That wouldn’t bother Frogina one bit; she’d just hitch a ride in a friend’s convertible.
Her motto – “It’s summer. Let’s have a blast.”
