Sorry, Kermit

Thu 02 December 2010

I ate a frog leg last night. Yes, it tasted like chicken. I was nervous about it. Our outdoor table wasn't well lit, and it looked like a plate of shadowy little supermodels with well-built calves. My brain tried furiously to distract me while I chewed, alternately wondering what kind of spice rub would work well with frog and trying to imagine a Busby Berkeleyesque presentation that would show frog legs to best advantage.

I felt guilty eating frog legs after all Kermit did to outrun Doc Hopper in The Muppet Movie.

My fellow volunteer was nervous too. She engaged me in a tiny muay thai match with the bones, and it was much funnier than it ought to have been.
