Then she bought a ceramic frog and had a contest to name him. "Elder Caesar" was chosen, because it meant "when he 'sees her' he wants to 'seize her'." If there was even a hint of flirtation or interest in another missionary, Elders and Sisters were encouraged to call the President and tell him that they had a "frog alert." No questions were asked, but there would be an immediate emergency transfer. This could also apply to missionaries who were receiving unwanted or unsolicited attention from members, investigators, or other individuals in their areas.
So today in walks Elder Madsen, on exchanges with Elder White, with this frog that he's obtained at the Rex Mardi Gras parade! While the rest of us were collecting beads at the parades, Elder Madsen was catching this frog. Since the original Elder Caesar went home with the Wall's, Elder M donated this little green guy to the mission. We will, however, have to do surgery to remove his heart with a totally improper phrase embroidered on it. He will be dressed in appropriate missionary attire, complete with his little name tag.
