After viewing a movie, Karrah Crain and her boyfriend were driving home, enjoying the trip with the windows down. They were astonished to see a little frog hitchhiker hanging out when her partner casually stated he believed he spotted something in the side-view mirror.
The couple was amazed that the frog, whose they called Geoffrey, had managed to cling on at that pace as they were traveling at roughly 60 mph. Crain was instantly concerned that he might try to leap or tumble off, so she put her hand down next to him just in case. However, it appears that he mistook her gesture for an invitation. She carefully carried him inside the car, where she knew he would be, after he leaped into her hands with joy.
Once he was in the car, Geoffrey jumped up onto the dashboard, but Crain quickly got him off of there because it was too hot. Wanting to find a nice spot to settle in, Geoffrey assessed his new surroundings and jumped into the coziest spot he could find.
“That’s when he jumped onto the vent,” Crain said. “He crawled in, turned around and sat like this for about 20 minutes until we got home.”
Finally, the couple arrived home and went to get Geoffrey out of the car — but at first, he didn’t want to go. He was quite content with his cozy new spot, and seemed to have been hoping to stay there a little longer.
“I had to shove the side of some sunglasses through the other side of the vent to poke him in the butt enough for him to come out,” Crain said. “It was easier than it sounds.”
Crain helped Geoffrey out of the car and carefully lowered him into a plant that she kept on her porch. She predicted that he would choose that location, and she was correct. He moved right in and pretended that this was where he had always wanted to be.
“He just went about his day like he didn’t go on the ride of his life,” Crain said.
Now, the couple sees Geoffrey every night, hanging out on the porch and hunting for insects. They hadn’t expected a little hitchhiker that day, but now they’re glad it happened because they ended up making the cutest new friend.
