Six LDS Writers and A Frog

Really, I Prevaricated
Deeds Envenomous And Random
For Reasons Of Goofiness

But your stories were the highlight of my week! Thanks for playing along. I put all the entries in a box and drew a winner -- Karlene! (She deserves whatever annual prize they give for best mystery novel, but she's getting a cheesy Fun Frog Pack instead.) And thanks to Melanie for suggesting we try to pull off an April Fools joke in the first place. (Did it work?)

Too funny. =) Quite a leap of imagination, Froggie.

Jee, Kerry, I lost a lot of sleep of the "death" of Frog! :) That was very fun! Thanks!

You can't pull an April Fool's joke two days before the 1st! That's not how it works...

An April Fool's joke? I had no idea! I thought it was just fun. I guess it worked, then.

Hmmm, that frog is sneaky! I've seen the weapons before (there all gathered from Kerry's house) but the couch the frog is pictured on for today's post wasn't in the house last time I checked.

Where does the frog live anyway?

Whew! I'm glad to find out I'm innocent. Chocolate chip cookies are a pretty powerful motive, after all.

Loved it, Kerry!

That dang frog has more lives than a cat and has more warts!

FHL - The timing was the brilliant part. :-)

Anura R - My gosh I've missed you! Welcome back! I'd consider doing in poor Frog for real if you'd promise to hang around.

Anonymous - All kinds of things change when one runs off and joins the Army. Hurry home from Korea and see for yourself. (And do you supposed it's really wise to tell the world that your mother has a virtual arsenal at her disposal?)

Yes, I took it seriously! Kerry, I was about to send you a private e-mail and ask you if the frog was really dead. It never occurred to look at the calendar. :)

Hey, here's a fun contest that you writer types might want to try:

It's a Style Invitational contest to come up with your own story using only words found in 'The Cat in the Hat'

(They even provide a link to an alphabetical list of all the allowed words.)

Personally, I've yet to "get ink" on a Style Invitation entry, but it's worth a shot.

I won?!!? Oh my gosh. Last thing I won was an ink pen in the 7th grade! I feel so special. :)

And I completely forgot it was April Fools until I saw your post.

Hey Kerry, I got my braces off a few weeks ago and I got my retainer today. It has a frog on in in honor of Frog on the blog! (funny how that rhythms. It's almost like it was planned.)

Karlene, I need your address. You can send it to me privately, of course. You too, Amy. Anybody who gets a frog retainer automatically wins a Fun Frog Pack! (Or is it a Frog Fun Pack? I can never remember.)

Eat your heart out, FHL! Seriously, thanks for the heads up on the Washington Post thing. I couldn't do it in a hundred years, but I'd love to read the entries of those who can!) In fact, if anybody's trying it, send it to me and I'll post it on Friday!

I got my Frog Fun Pack! Thank you so much. I spread all the items out on my kitchen counter in an attractive display so that when people come to visit and they say, "What's this?" I can tell them I won the Frog Fun Pack from Six LDS Writers and a Frog.

And they will be very impressed.
