No Tadpole !

30 August

When you are 8, and your dream is to be a zookeeper, and you ordered a tadpole habitat over a month ago, and you had the neighbor come every day while you were away camping to check the mailbox so that your tadpole (which was supposed to come that week) would not bake in the mailbox…and when you came home…it had not arrived as promised…and every day for the next two weeks you skipped down the driveway to meet the maillady and came shuffling back witout the tadpole…and now you have just started back to school and have to wait until you get home on the afternoon bus to check and see if….if…IF your leopard frog tadpole has come yet !!!!!

Well I suppose then you  would be so frustrated that you too would be driven to put up a sign on your front porch …

One thought on “No Tadpole !

  1. Well it is now Dec, 31, 4 months after ordering the tadpole, which is surely now a frog, we have given up on getting it. I’ve tried to get in contact with the company that was sending it many times and it seems they have disappeared from the face of the earth! So Zola is waiting for spring, when pet shops have tadpoles, to go and purchase her leopard frog tadpole. I’ll send pictures of it’s arrival to our home and the tadpole dilemma will be over!
