source It’s midnight and a large loud frog is making a non-frog like ribbett noise outside our bedroom. Every 3 seconds. I am timing it. It’s the loudest noise ever. It doesn’t sound like a frog but I have been reliably informed that it is by other guest-house neighbours. I’m contemplating going into the dark to locate the frog. Not quite sure of what my next move would be. Perhaps I’d shine a torch at it? It would be wrong to shoo it away with a stick wouldn’t it? Me versus frog. And a million other insects. In the dark. I would lose. I put my earplugs in and think non-amphibian thoughts.
