I'm Nobody! Who are you?

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you -- Nobody -- Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise -- you know!

How dreary -- to be -- Somebody!
How public -- like a Frog --
To tell one's name -- the livelong June --
To an admiring Blog!

Emily Dickinson

(Ed: I think someone's tampered with the last word)

Oh!! There was a tree frog in the window well at the worksite the other day.

And Mel was late to work cuz she stopped to play with him. And THEN I brought him into work for the kiddos to play with. And THEN I was made to quickly replace him in the window well by a bunch of wussy adults who went 'ewwwww' a LOT and reminded me frogs belong outside.... :-P
