b-b-b-c-c-ause ... those those... yes. those LIZARDS. those ones. those ones I HATE. are back!!! and they are grosser and uglier than ever before. and I just can.not.stand.them.
And you know why I can't stand them even more? I'll tell you.
The other day, while I was working with James, we walked through a gate into someones back yard and he started grinning...and smirking... and I asked him. Why grinnest thou??
and he sayeth unto me. because YOU just walked smack by a lizard and you did not see it.
and I thought to mine self. NO. NO!!!!. lizards are supposed to still be DEAD. not living not breathing or eating or freaking me out. but DEAD. They are not supposed to even be alive yet. Its waaaaaaaaay to cold for them. I wanted to get all my gardening/outdoor stuff done while they were dead. NOPE. they can.not.be.alive.
but. I kept walking. and yes. there was ANOTHER ONE. and it was so little, and brown, and, and UGLY.
and I did a small shriek (I couldn't scream out loud as were are supposed to be cleaning this pool for this older lady and , ya..) and I said James ANOTHER ONE. (and now this is where I start to shiver and shudder and tuck my legs under by rear-end in a lame attempt to keep lizards out of my house and up my legs)
So my 'super-man' tries to scare away the reptile. but, alas, tis ALL IN VAIN. He splashes it with water and all it does is SIT THERE AND STARE. stare. honestly. lizards are not supposed to stare when you dump water on them. They are supposed to FLEE. But no. he sits.he stares.he moves not.
And this is where I am totally freaking out but I soon start freaking out 'worser' because 'super-man' than take s the skimmer net and tries to move him and he bumps his head. and all it does.is this. His head just goes. FLIP-FLOP.you know how when you are holding a child and they are so relaxed everything just flip-flops around. ya . fah-lip. fah-lop. and he continues to STARE. AND HE STILL DOES NOT MOVE. So now I am going crazy but I continue to start to clean the pool, and this time am I ever glad I have eyes behind my head. other wise I am not sure I could have finished that job.
But just so you know when we left... He had dropped his head so it rested on the concrete. otherwise he just sat there scared silly of ME!!!!!. dumb thing. very dumb little thing.go back to your cave of sleep and stay there until the year 2032. that would be veeeeery fine with me.. very fine.indeed.
