STRANGE BUT TRUE

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

A WOMAN in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia was about to eat an or­ganic salad last Wed­nes­day when she found a piece of pro­tein she didn’t ex­pect: A tiny frog.

“I’m half­way through my salad and as I’m go­ing to stab another bit, I see (the frog) peek­ing out from un­der the salad,” Garfinkel told In­sid­eEdi­tion.com. “I jumped back. I screamed, ‘There’s a frog in my salad’!”

The 37-year-old Garfinkel is a strict veg­e­tar­ian with meat al­ler­gies. Not know­ing if she had chomped on other am­phib­ians by ac­ci­dent, she said ran to the bath­room where she threw up.

Mean­while, her hus­band shouted from the din­ing room, “It’s still alive!” The Los An­ge­les Times re­ported.

Af­ter he rinsed the lemon-tahini vinai­grette off the tiny frog, her hubby started rub­bing the frog’s belly and man­aged to rouse it from its stiff state.

Af­ter the amaz­ing res­ur­rec­tion, the Garfinkels felt weird about dump­ing the frog.

They put it in an old aquar­ium in their home and named it “Lucky”.
