The Sum Of All Fears

Raft3r is no chicken.

But if I come across a frog, I run the other direction.

Yes, I am not afraid to admit I act like a high school chick every time I see a frog.

Seriously, frogs freak me out. They are vile and disgusting.

Sorry, Kermit. But you are one of them. I don’t like you either.

It’s not just the live ones that get into Raft3r’s nerves. I can’t stand looking at pictures of frogs in magazines. Even their television images scare the bejesus out of me.

Imagine my shock when I came across these stuffed frogs made into coin purses in a public market in Baguio.

My American boss loved them so much. He bought tons of them for pasalubong (souvenirs). Raft3r, as a sign of protest, transferred to another department right away.

Raft3r needs to go now. I can't bear looking at the photo that accompanies this post.

Frogs are definitely gross. But frog purses? Those are beyond gross: they're bad fashion accessories. Ehehehe.

oi same tau, nagkaroon me fear sa frog because yan daw ang cause ng kulugo. eh nagkaroon ako nun nung kid pa me. tapos yung jump nila at paglabas-labas ng tongue, para kang lulunukin. gaya nung sa commercial na parang nilunok ng frog yung airplane. tas alam mo dati napapanaginipan ko yan, kalaban ko raw isang giant frog, so scary talaga grabbeeee!

nga pala favorite kong damit nung grade 3 & 4 ay yung kerropi t-shirt ko. hehehe

When I was a kid, would you believe that I ate the meat of frogs. My grandparents call it palakang bukid. Parang chicken lang ang lasa. :p

I don't know if I can it something like that again if it finds its way to our dinner table. hehe
