THE BOY AND THE FROG
A boy was crossing the road one day when a frog called out to him and said,
"If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked
up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a
beautiful Princess, I will stay with you for one week." The boy took the
frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to his pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful
Princess, I'll stay with you and do *Anything* you want." Again the boy
took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally
the frog asked, "What is it? I've told you I'm a beautiful Princess, that
I'll stay with you for a week and do *Anything* you want. Why won't you
The boy said, "Look, I'm a computer programmer. I don't have time for
girlfriends, but a talking frog is really cool."
