Okay, has anyone else noticed all the little geckos that are everywhere outside? I know we see them more in the summer but really, on the walls, outside my house, windows, and the occasional one that had to come inside when I was at home by helpless little (bug terrified) self. Now I don’t know what he was thinking, but I’m pretty sure we were both petrified in this situation….
You know, they do this (what I call) wiggly snake run in the door and across the floor, and of course that’s when I screech aaahhhjuuhhhahs. (or something pretty close to that which probably could have made someone roll on the floor laughing) Now let me just say that I know how small these little lizards are, but they are just so creepy like a snake or something. So naturally I’m on a kitchen chair, and the poor thing is trying be invisigecko next to the wall. (this is when I realized I had to grow some courage, and thought I could catch him and save him…..yea it gets better)
Now since I am still on this chair, I spot one of those annoying flyer pieces of mail; you know the ones that are thick like cardboard. So I grabbed it off the kitchen counter while still keeping an eye on the lizard. Now I had to get him on the piece of paper; can’t be that hard right? WRONG. I mean that began me walking around with this piece of paper trying to get it to walk up onto it slowly, but instead every time it would take off running in the opposite direction or towards my feet. Then I would jump and squirm doing this “I am trying not to be terrified of a tiny gecko” dance. I know what your all thinking, just pick it up right? But, what if he looses his tail, I mean that has to hurt so bad!! So I ended up giving up, and he ran into this little storage area we have.
This concludes the score:
