Signs that you live in the subtropics: #4309H4

I separated some overgrown snake-tongue plants today (also known as mother-in-law tongue), and brought a few pots of them inside. And within an hour I had about 15 tiny little frogs hopping around the family room. (Obviously they'd hitchhiked their way inside.) I tried to catch them all and let them loose outside, but I know I missed some because I found one hours later, dehydrated and dead on my hallway floor.

Forever the optimist, I put on my Dr. Frankenstein hat and scooped up the little guy and slipped him into a cup of water. I mean, I know it sounds crazy, but if he died of dehydration then maybe if I REhydrated him he'd come back to life. It worked with Sea Monkeys, after all.

Alas, that was not the result. R.I.P., little froggy.
