Time zones

What Seiuli♥ was doing at 9:02 pm central standard time (4:02 pm Hawaii time):



What Tori:) was doing 9:02 pm central standard time:

I was driving Tristan home from his football game when all the sudden something started running, or wait, no- it was hopping across the street. I slammed on my brakes. Tristan starts saying, "What?? What happened?? What is it?!?!" as I open my car door. I said, "There's a frog crossing the road."

T: "So?"

Me: "So I don't wanna run it over."

T: "What!!?? Come back!"

Me: "Hold on, I'm trying to see where it is..."

I found the frog and it jumped under our car. I was scared to drive because I didn't want to squish it. Tristan looked out his door and said, "Go. It's ok." So I slowly drove forward. I asked Tristan if I ran it over. He looked and said he didn't think so. I told him to go check. He got out to look, saw the frog safely jumping across the street, and walked back to the car.

T: "I'll just walk." (We were only like 20 yards from our house.)

Me: "Do you think I'm a dork?"

T: "Yes."

Me: "Yessssssssssssssss."



The End :)

PS. HAPPY 8th BIRTHDAY TO MY NEPHEW, Big J!!!!

I guess I'm a dork. I would have done the same thing. About 12 years ago I hit some baby ducks that were crossing the street. I had a hard time getting over it. Yeah,I'm just a wee bit sensitive.

I've never seen a frog crossing sign before! LOL! You get extra points for being kind to the frog.

I'll bet that Sei is having a blast. How could someone not? Seriously, you and I are going to Hawaii. But probably not until 2058. Will we be too old then...? :)

If it's any consolation, at 10:02 eastern, I was probably getting ready for bed. Your frog story is way better than that.

SAVE THE FROGS.

I never even knew there was such a thing as frog crossings--You are so funny ; )

Frog Lover.

I do not like frogs. At all.

Toy frogs are super cute, but real frogs and toads. YUCK.

But a squished frog would be worse, so, uh....YAY TORI for not squishing the frog.

Klin said...

The Jungle thanks you for being kind to frogs. LOL.

Tristan is so funny. "I'll just walk"

Brittany said...

JustRandi said...

If we don't save the frogs, how will we ever get the princes?
Quick thinking! Good job!

That girl said...

OHHH!!! I know what you mean.. I was driving the other day and I ran over a squirrel. I was sooo upset. I wanted to get out and take it to the veternarian...but obviously they would've laughed at me.

Happy Birthday to the nephew! It's great to be eight!!!

I guess this answers the question "why did the frog cross the road?"
