Frogs and Warts

18 Aug

Nancy Toby wrote an interesting piece on Fears and Phobias on her blog. It’s made me think about my own fears and phobias.

I’m no long afraid of swimming with the alligators since I did that in the Publix Family Fitness Tri last summer. I also swam in the strong tide at the Escape Ft. DeSoto tri (both tris had warning signs at the start line…Danger No Swimming Alligators in Lake! and Dangerous Currents NO SWIMMING). Since I swim regularly in the Gulf of Mexico, I’m not afraid of a shark attack! So I guess swimming is out.

I’m no longer afraid of hitting the wall..I’ve hit it so much I bounce off now.

My mother used to say at least you ‘ve got your health, that was before she lost her mind to Alzheimer’s. So my one kidney is working fine, I’ve been cancer free for 6 months, my brain tumor is not growing, and the new tumor on my back is a lyphomia. So yea I’m not afraid of losing my health. I think it’s already gone!

So this morning during my 7 mile run, I found my fear. FROGS. Yup a FROG attacked me! As I was running thru the woods on my regular running loop a FROG jump out of the bushes and attacked me. He landed on my shirt and tried to wrestle me to the ground. However, I prevailed and got him off of my shirt. But now I’m afraid I’ll get warts. I’ve washed my shirt and my hands then I took a shower…but warts people. Saturday I’m going to be very careful when I go thru the woods. I want to make sure I don’t get mugged again.

    Be careful! What if that frog had been a poison dart frog! Or worse, a member of a frog gang.You can never be too careful.

    Oh man that was great. Maybe if you remember Monty Pythons Holy Grail you could bring The Holy Hand Grenade that they used against the Killer Bunny. “oh, oh, look at the fangs!”

    Now if we could just turn the dogs and the frogs on each other, we could train in peace.
