Sherry, I wanted to share with you a bit of toad positivity. I’ve never met a toad that was unkind. There have been several large toads that come out regularly at night near my home, and — get this — lean into the head rubs I give them as if they’re enjoying it. I wish your toads could show you their only aggressive intentions are to help moles eat those pesky bugs. They would apologize to you for their unattractiveness, and tell you that to love a toad is to love them, warts and all. Not unlike some of the people we meet from time to time.
