Penny Toads

I finally found a picture of the tiny toads I used to play with as child. I liked the little things until one day my brother told me to close my eyes and hold out my hand and he'd give me a big surprise. My brother always bought me the best presents, so I happily obliged and soon had the very unpleasant experience of having a tiny toad foot in my ear canal. Needless to say, I freaked out pretty good and ran to the house to tell my mother what happened.

She listened impatiently for a minute while I wailed about the frog in my ear, then she looked at me and said, "Don't be a tattle tale."
