Growing Frogs

Growing Frogs.

When I was a kid, me and my bro would go down to where the water from the nuclear power plant drained into the canal and collect buckets of frogspawn. We’d pour the gloop into an old fishtank at the bottom of the garden and watch as the little black dots grew tails and became tadpoles, swimming around in the goo. Next their legs would form, like miniature chicken drumsticks… then the double-elbowed arms with their seven-fingered hands, and the heads, the glowing eyes and the mouths with their serrated razor-sharp cutting-edges. Then finally their wings would inflate and the frogs would fly away to hunt for rats and kittens, before mating season came round and the frogspawn formed again.

Sometimes, when the tumours don’t hurt too much, I look back at my childhood fondly. It’s amazing how great things seem when you don’t know shit.

  1. I have interviewed a few parents to attempt
    to understand what their true objection is with their child playing video games.
    It is an adventurous game filled with fun and excitement.
    In addition, you can save the effort of coding
    the store functionality, virtual goods dependencies, billing interfaces and rewards.

      And what does this have to do with “Growing Frogs”? Is this more spam commenting? If you want me to check out your blog and put it on my blog-roll, send me a message via the Contact Form. I am really getting annoyed with all the off-topic Comments that seem to be just a way of getting your blog URL out there. Send me a message via the Contact Form. If I like it, we can do a reciprical blog-roll link-swap thing. But I am not happy with ppl using my Comments as free advertisement space. I’ve kept my Comments unmoderated since the start, 2007. That’s 6 years. Please don’t make me treat you all as children FFS!
