Some Times Frogs Pee on You

a brown frog perched on a bed of brown leaves surrounded by twigs
I took this picture shortly after this frog peed on the shoe of my wife. She was trying to encourage him to get off the path so he didn't get run over by a bike, or stepped on by a hiker. He apparently knew what he was doing and did not want to be told what to do next. Some times we don't like to be pushed off the path we view as the right one for us, but sometimes when we are it is for our own good. Sometimes by someone that knows the dangers of that path a lot better than we do. And rather than thanking them for their gentle encouragement we pee on their shoe and are on our way. Though that frog may never come back and thank the person that was kind enough to get them off the wrong path, a friend might or a child might.
