"Delmar O'Donnell: Them syreens did this to Pete. They loved him up and turned him into a horny toad.
Ulysses Everett McGill: I'm not sure that's Pete.
Delmar O'Donnell: Of course it's Pete! Look at him!... We gotta find some kind of wizard to change him back."

PLACE: The backyard
MonkeyBoy was outside practicing his pitching this morning while I was on the laptop trying to get caught up on reading and commenting on everyone's 365 blogs. He comes bursting into the house yelling excitedly - "Mom! Get your camera. There's a toad out in the yard!" We live in a fairly urban area so seeing "wildlife" like this is a big deal around here. This is definitely a toad (short legs, bumpy skin, chubby body, large ridge and big eyes) and not a frog (strong long legs, smooth or slimy skin, teeth, large webbed feet). He wasn't a very appreciative model. In fact, he looks pretty darn grumpy in this picture, doesn't he? Maybe he didn't get any from the "syreens".
