“You know a frog goes down, because he wants to go forward more? I try to think like that.”

Truth, brother. Truth. I guess.

OK, no fair picking on Choo for offering a confusing metaphor. Few people whose native tongue is English can whip out a decent metaphor, so Choo gets extra points for simply trying. And besides, it’s merely the introduction to a good column about Choo and his struggles by Anthony Castrovince at

So I guess what I’m saying is, come for the frog metaphor, stay for the insight.
