Katie, this never would have happened if I’d left the toad in the basket.

Rudhi, if you smile, that’s enough for me!

William, that is exactly right!! You should have left it there.

Leave it to you to give life to the lifeless by snaring what most of us wouldn't even see, let alone capture so adroitly.
