This odd little fellow was advertised on Ebay as a hippopotamus teapot but once I got it I wasn’t quite sure if that is indeed what it is. I got it for $5 so it was a bargain but still—what do YOU think it is? Maybe hippos look differently in Nepal? All guesses are appreciated. 🙂
She raised her hand to cut me off. “I am aware of your epistolary flirtation. Which is all well and good–as long as it’s well and good. Before I ask you some questions, perhaps you would like some tea?”
“That would depend on what kind of tea you were offering.”
“So diffident! Suppose it was Earl Grey.”
I shook my head. “Tastes like pencil shavings.”
“I don’t drink beverages named after beheaded monarchs. It seems so tacky.”
“Might as well sip butterfly wings.”
“You can’t be serious.”
The old woman nodded her approval. “I wasn’t.”
“Because you know when a cow chews grass? And he or she chews and chews and chews? Well, green tea tastes like French-kissing that cow after it’s done chewing all that grass.”
“Would you like some mint tea?”
“Only under duress.”
I clapped my hands. “Now you’re talking!”

Hmmm… a frog face? It’s got personality but I’m not sure what it is!
I think the face looks like a frog too. It’s interesting and a conversation piece for sure.
I agree with everyone else that it looks like a frog’s face. The body? Don’t know! Some kind of mutant frog-opottomus-elephant??
I agree that the face looks like a frog.
