Word Up - It's Time to Get Wordy!

I caught a lizard!

Twice actually. Two times.

The first time I grabbed it I shrieked like the girl that I am and hurled it to the ground.

Then, spurred on by Sweet Pickle's excitement, I snuck up on the gnarly beast and grabbed it again. My boy was so proud. His Mama has come a long way, baby. Yes indeedy. Now I am officially cool.

Lizards... so neat and yet, so freaky-deaky. Remember that time they caused me to say totally ridiculous things to my children? Yeah. I remember.

Follow those links, man. You could track our lizard history through the ages. It's good stuff.

Funny girl. I'm surprised the lizard didn't lose it's tail. Has that ever happened to you? Talk about freaky-deaky.

* how do you type: cold shivers down one's spine? bluuuugghhh *

I guess that about sums it up.

Oh oi. I would've run the other way. No way do I need to be picking up lizards. On the other hand, when we went hiking there a couple weeks ago, I was going to pick up a snake for her...the things we do for our children, right?
