It was rainy season and an old man was walking down the road.
From underneath a bush a frog was watching him scuffle. Sensing that the old man was kind the frog jumped in his path and accosted him:
“Hi, I am actually a beautiful princess who has been cursed and turned into a frog. If you kiss me, the spell would break and I will turn back into the princess. You can then marry me”.
The old man looked at the frog kindly, extended his hand and lifted it. Then gently he placed the frog in his pocket.
“Arent you going to kiss me” The frog asked.
“ No,at my age, a talking frog is more of a novelty than a beautiful princess” the old man replied.
