Kermit's Big Adventure
This is the story of Kermit, a little country frog who hitched a ride to The Big City!
Once there was a little green tree frog who sought shelter from The Big Bad Storm in the cracks of a Toyota pickup truck. Little did our hero know that his shelter would soon be rolling through the storm to The Land Of Concrete!
(Pause for a collective gasp and shudder)
It was a long and treacherous journey through torrents of rain above and rising water below. Kermit clung. The little frog hung on for dear life, unnoticed, in his Tacoma Storm Shelter. An hour and a half later, he finally reached The Land Of Concrete and a parking garage.
Where he waited. And he waited.
Concrete muffled the sounds of the city, so Kermit climbed out of his hidey-hole and onto the windshield to survey his situation. Hmmmmm. . . it didn't look good. Concrete everywhere. So he waited. And while he waited Kermit pondered Life and Death, the sun and the moon, stars and fluorescent lighting. And he waited some more. For nine hours Kermit sat and thought about spiders, and pigeons, and mummification. About little green tree frogs and their place in the circle of life.
And then something happened. His stars aligned. The human returned and saw him on the windshield. And there, two lost souls struggling to survive in a world of concrete met. A cautious friendship bloomed.
So instead of driving back to the country on the freeway, the human took a detour. And along the way the human pondered life and death and God and the role of little green tree frogs and humans in the circle of life. And all the while Kermit hung onto the windshield as the human drove really, really, really, slowly and pissed off the rest of the drivers in the city who were not wondering about the meaning of life and little green tree frogs.
(That's Kermit stuck on the windshield above the people walking.)
And soon, there in The Land Of Concrete, Kermit, the little green tree frog, found a little green place. And a new chapter in his life began.
And the human remembered this lesson:
When all seems lost in a land of hard things, hunker down, weather the storm, and God will send you some help.
