He said his name was Gary. My
niece Aisha brought him inside after the storm. She had so much pride in her eyes when she showed him to me.
He asked me how I was doing. I said, “I’ve seen better days Gary.” We talked about my day and the frog asked why I’m putting off going to the doctor.
To which I respond, “I’m scared Gary. I’ll have to admit there is something wrong with me. I always thought I would someday be normal, but if I’m sick then I will almost certainly never be normal.”
Gary sat quietly and then said, “You’re not supposed to be normal.”
I smiled and told Aisha to take Gary back to the tree in which she found him.
