Let me start out by saying that I Mandy Lyons have been afraid of frogs since the fourth grade. It all started when I was at my dads house sitting in front of our bonfire, barefoot, outside, in the middle of the night. I was tremendously thirsty, so I got up from my beige lawn chair and fearlessly made my way to our coolers by our house. When I got there I stuck my hand in the icy cold water, fished out my orange soda, and started back to my chair. I was almost back to my chair when I felt a cold, squishy, thing under my foot. That thing was a frog. Quickly I lifted up my foot, and the frog must have been more freaked than I was because it jumped right into the fire. Ever since I have been able to feel the gross squishy frog under my feet. To be honest I had not really thought about that day for a long time, until today when I was reminded how much Im scared of frogs.
