My children delighted in exploring the creek a short distance from our campsite. One day Rhonda found a particularly vocal frog, and enjoyed showing it off to everyone.
As dinner time approached, I told the kids to put the frogs back and wash for the meal. Rhonda put hers in the creek and was upset when it didn't move. "Mommy, my frog's dead!" she cried.
I yelled back to her that she should check if it still 'talked.' She picked the frog up, held it to her ear and answered, 'Yes.'
My unthinking response was, "Well, if he croaks, he's alive!"
