The Lizard

We have a lizard that lives in the bedroom. I realize that sounds like the start of a 3rd-grader's story, but it's also true. We first saw him a week or two ago, but only for a little bit, running up the wall. But now he seems to have taken up a permanent house in the closet, by Don's fancy office shirts.

At first it was a little creepy -- it sounds more like a bird than a lizard -- but now it's really great.

Of course, we also hope the gecko is eating any stray mosquitoes that find their way inside, but we're not sure about that. More about house geckos here.
