Swallow the toad

IMG_0837The famously witty French writer Nicolas Chamfort reportedly said: “All literatures might be ransacked in vain for a more repulsive saying than this, that a man must swallow a toad every morning if he wishes to be quite sure of finding nothing more disgusting still for the rest of the day.” Mark Twain, meanwhile, is (wrongly) credited with the version of the saying that talks about eating the frog.

Either way, the sentiment is the same. Got an unpleasant task to do? JFDI and get on with your day. The longer you leave it, the more horrible it will look.

And if you have two toads? Swallow the bigger, more disgusting one first.
