communing with nature

September 9, 2008

last night i came home from work after dark and saw a shadow in the corner of the front stoop, i thought that it would be really sweet if it was a toad . . . we have had a ton of them around all summer, it’s been so damp.  it was a toad so i totally had to try and pet it.

maybe ten minutes past and the toad was not only still letting me pet it, but had hopped closer and was leaning into the pet.  if i rubbed the top of the toad he pushed up into my hand, if i pet either side it would move closer either right or left.  it was fantastic.

when i got home tonight i peeked into the bush next to the door and there was the toad (i want to assume it was the same little guy), and when i reached down to pet it i was getting the same little toady love.

    Awesome! I love unconditional animal love, and toads? Are totally cool.

    GAH! WordPress is eating any and all comments I make from my other email addy, so this is a test to see if this one goes through… Oh, and you can find my real comment in your spam folder. The place WordPress is sending all my comments to die.
