My little frog, Amphibeneur

I used to publish articles, columns, and letters to the editor in high school, in local newspapers (in Baton Rouge) and then, while at LSU (1983-91), in the LSU Daily Reveille. I was a columnist for a while at the Reveille, while in engineering and law school, and occasionally published pro-free market type columns. But they were not all political. I was quite the smart-ass when I was a young pup.

Well–today I was walking the dogs and saw a bullfrog hiding in a drain pipe in our yard, so took our 8 year old son out to see it. We were talking about him and he said “now I have a pet frog. … what should we name him?” I said, “Hmm, how about ‘Amphibeneur’?” He said “why”? So I ended up relating to him a smart-ass letter to the editor I published back in college, mocking a weepy “my cat has died please be careful not to run over cats everyone!” letter to the editor in the Reveille, in which I made up a story about my own pet frog, Amphibeneur (short for Amphibian Entrepreneur), who was killed by a vicious cat. Here it is.

    I’m glad I took the time to read the cat letter (and her prescriptions) and your response. Hilarious.

    PS. For some reason this post appeared in my RSS reader with the title “Order Ovral G Online No Prescription – HQ Pharmacy” so you might want to look into that.

    This had me rolling. My brother asked me what was wrong with me. I will certainly share this.

    Could this be that person? http://www.linkedin.com/pub/charlotte-kyzar-pearson/12/a37/782
    The timing and geography are slightly off, but being a “Licensed floral designer” then getting into real estate in 07 would seem to fit..
