Frog Baseball

So my Dad and I were being a little bit snappish to each other as I was leaving the house.  Nothing bad, we were just acting like a couple of five year olds.  When I opened my car door I found that there was a Cuban Tree Frog hiding in the fold between the door and the body of the car. 

For reference, here's a picture of a Cuban Tree Frog.

That's when I got the great idea that I had learned from Beavis and Butthead some 20 years ago.  Frog Baseball!!!!

So I try to grab ahold of the frog, but it's really slimey.  I have a hard time hanging onto it.  It keeps wanting to slide/crawl out of my hand.  But then I finally get a grip on it, and decide to let loose on my best fastfrogball on my Dad. 

So I draw back, and boom.......  The frog doesn't go anywhere.  After all the sliding around, now it decides to stick to my hand like a giant frog like booger.  I think, "well, that's disappointing."

Then it hops away, and I decide to heck with it.  I have a hand full of frog slime, and places to go.  I've have to find something to throw at Dad another time. 

The Slimey End.

EDIT!!!:  Cuban Tree Frogs are an invasive species, and push out native frogs.  They should be squished without mercy.  I would not have thrown a native frog.  Only an invasive one deemed squishy.
