- Welcome, New Families!
First an old joke then some college prep links...
A young woman was on her way to high school one day when a frog called out to her and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a handsome prince." She bent over, picked up the frog and put it in her pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a prince, I will stay with you for one week." The young woman took the frog out of her pocket, smiled at it and returned it to her pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a prince, I'll be your boyfriend!" Again she took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into her pocket.
Finally the frog asked, "What is it? I've told you I'm a handsome prince, that I'll stay with you for a week and be your boyfriend. Why won't you kiss me?"
The young woman said, "Look, I'm busy prepping for college. I don't have time for a boyfriend, but a talking frog is really cool."
