The fisherman and the frog
A story of wisdom in action
This is a story about a 72 year old guy who loves to fish. [ Fisherman and the frog ]
He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, ‘Pick me up.’
He looked around and couldn’t see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again,
‘Pick me up’.
He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog.
The man said, ‘Are you talking to me?‘
The frog said, ‘Yes, sure I’m talking to you.‘
‘Look‘, the frog said, ‘pick me up, then kiss me and I’ll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen.’
The frog continued, ‘I’ll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!‘
The man looked at the frog for a short time, then reached over, picked up the frog, carefully, and placed it in his front pocket.
He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said,
‘Nah, at my age I’d rather have a talking frog!‘
