Today I was visiting my friend Mimi and reading her True Story post. She had found a creepy crawly in the shower with her and to top it off, she was pregnant! Can you imagine finding a bug in the shower with you and having limited vision due to a BIG, PREGNANT BELLY?!!!!
Her story reminded me of a time when I found something taking a shower with me. I was just minding my own showering business when I look down and saw a LIZARD! It was just sitting there looking straight up at me with it's itty bitty eyes. There wasn't much I could do. I was right in the middle of my showering, with shampoo in my hair. I didn't want to spray water on him and cause him to run around in a frenzy. And there was NO way I was gonna stomp on him. EEEUUU!!! That would have been GROSS!!! All I could do was finish my shower. It seemed like the LONGEST, most CAUTIOUS shower I had ever taken. I felt so violated. But, to be honest, he seemed more scared of this 5ft tall giant than I was of him. Poor little guy. I started to get attached to him, but only for a moment. I finished my shower and OUT I WENT.
I thought about scooping him up with a newspaper, but then I got discouraged thinking he would panic and get loose in the house. So rescue had to wait until help arrived from work. When my husband finally made it home, I told him about the peeping lizard waiting to be rescued. He marched into the bathroom only to find nothing. The lizard was gone. "OH GOOD," I said. "He must have went right out from where he came."
A few days later, my husband was sweeping the bathroom and lo and behold, who did he discover under the shower mat? Yup, the little lizard. He had tried to make his escape and never made it out alive. Poor little lizard. :0(
