The Green Frog and Swollen Mass

The Green Frog and Swollen Mass
May and June – 2011

Master Po spend quiet evening at cabin with honorable young son. I see prize green frog in green grass and think, “maybe I catch it quickly and throw it into pond for bass to eat.” After many years of training in Shoulin Priest tactics learned at the Institute ( )- Master Po use his quickness to reach down and grab green frog. [greenus frogitus]
Master Po, remember, is also color blind. When hand very close to frog, Master Po stop just in time & realize that frog is really [caninus turditus] an oval dog turd. Close call, but frog live on for another day.
Father’s Day weekend, 2011
Saturday, Master Po get bright idea to wade waters of Yellow Creek to net bait for bass fishing. Honorable young Po not around to assist and Mrs. Po not wade waters at all unless there are jewels in creek.
Master Po happy with catch – many minnows, crayfish and hellgrammites.
On way back to bank, Master Po slip twice on slimy rocks in creek and fall on bum very hard. Immediately thinking to not lose bait, Master Po yell “holy hellgrammite,” and he happy he saved all baits each time. He do this by not catching fall with hands, and allow ass to hit rocks.
Then he remember, he take Coumadin, and left cheek of bum start hurting very much, and start swelling to humongous proportions. As usual, no matter how hard Master Po try to do good job, he end up doing half-assed job instead.
Sunday morning, Master Po in pain, but he attend church services with Mrs. Po. We attend mass even though I have large mass on ass. He not want to get ass chewed out by Mrs. Po so he go with her.
Later, we take Master Po Dad out to eat at Perkins in Johnstown for Honorable Father’s Day with other family members. With large mass on ass, Master Po give impression when sitting that he a little “tipsy.” He embarrassed that patrons might think he drunk at 11:00am Sunday morning. He have to slide into and out of seat half assed backwards, and this not make him feel any better. He also limp very badly.

Today, Monday, if you see Master Po dragging his ass around area, you will know why. Like rainbow in sky, Master Po expect it to change colors in next couple of days.
