Getting Old—Having Fun

Two old fellows were walking along the shoreline of a lake when a frog came hopping up to them.

Creaking with age, one of the old-timers slowly bent down and scooped up the frog in his hands. As he stood there gazing at the frog, fascinated by its ugliness, the frog croaked, "Hey, mister! I'm not really a frog. If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess who will do anything your heart desires."

Startled, the old man slipped the frog into his pocket and headed on down the shoreline. For the longest time he and his friend trudged along in silence.

"Well?" his buddy finally blurted out. "You gonna kiss it?"

"Naw, I guess not," the first codger replied. "At my age, I think I'll have more fun with a talking frog."
