It is spring, just about, in New England. There are daffodils blooming in our yard, and I have been riding each Sunday since the beginning of April. The last few weeks have seen some major professional changes (more on that in a future post), and I have found riding on Sundays to be a great antidote to any stress that might have been creeping in.
Since spring brings frogs in the wetlands, I thought I would share something sent to me by Dean Landsman. Call this one the first geek joke of spring.
An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."
He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do ANYTHING you want."
Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.
Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"
The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."
