Frog and Hamster Go Back to School: Chapter 2


On Friday morning, Frog went down to check the cast list outside the theatre department before homeroom started.  He thought he'd read exceptionally well for the part of Gilbert Blythe in "Anne of Green Gables," but he found his name at the very bottom of the cast list.

He was so incensed that he marched straight over to the drama teacher's office and knocked on the door.  

Once inside Mr. Dirson's office, Frog became very nervous.  

Frog sat blankly through homeroom.

He drew a somewhat shocking picture during Algebra II.

After that, he started to not feel very well.  He asked his Social Studies teacher if he could go to the nurse's office.

He felt better just in time for lunch.

Do you want to break things?

Last week, my four-year-old said to me, "I want to break things.  Do you want to break things?"  This drawing's in honor of him.  You can purchase it on a kids' t-shirt, too (see the link to my store).

No Loitering

I was trying to think of something funny to go with this sign, but all I could come up with was a majestic horse.

Careers I Have Considered

This is what happens when you're an English and Creative Writing major at a liberal arts college and you work in food service in the summers instead of doing internships.  Fifteen years later....

The Zoo

Depending on which side of the bars you're on, the zoo has a very different quality and purpose.  For some, time may seem to stand still.  For others, it is scheduled between the hours of 9am and 6pm, with the hustle and bustle of bear-feedings, penguin talks, lunch, and making it back to the car before the traffic hits.  Which is inside?  Which is outside?  Perhaps we'll never know.  Pass the peanuts, please.
