Can’t sleep, frog will eat me


Yeah, so, the Spawn has a little cold, just like everyone else in the world these days. It’s not super bad. He’s just sounds congested. It’s sad and cute.

Since the little guy is congested, mighty, mighty good man David bought a humidifier for his bedroom. Specifically, he bought an “adorable” frog humidifier. Seriously, it says “adorable” on the box, see?

I think this is false advertising. There is nothing adorable about this humidifier. See for yourself. This is the view Calvin gets from his crib.

I imagine that every night Calvin is in his crib saying, “Can’t sleep, frog will eat me. Can’t sleep, frog will eat me.”

I’m worried that this frog is going to scar the boy for life. When he gets older he will have an uncontrollable fear of frogs the way most of us are afraid of clowns.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. That frog does look a bit scary.. I must admit that.. maybe it would be best to remove it?

  2. Amphibian phobia? That stuffed tiger already looks despondent about having to be in the same room as the killer frog.

  3. That’s not just a stuffed tiger…that’s Hobbes!
