Geico the gecko.

January 30, 2009

My brother moved home a couple weeks ago, and he brought his pet gecko, Geico, with him.

Geico’s cool, but the crickets he eats … that’s a whole ‘nother story.  They are so loud.  On a warm summer night, hearing crickets in the distance is nice.  But hearing even one from the next room, with its “chirps” magnified because of the wooden floors, it sounds like a miniature smoke alarm that broke and won’t stop ringing.

Maybe I need to turn the temperature down.

… Actually, just as I finished that last sentence, the chirping completely stopped.  Maybe Geico ate him?  I wonder if Geico ate him just because he was too loud.  I would.

(Just kidding.)

    You could rip their wings out. Then they’ll be quiet. 😀

    Wow. Those two words, “rip out,” make a world of difference in meaning from something more civil … like “remove.”

    But I guess my post had a malicious bent to it to begin with.

    Hugs, not bugs.

    Courtney: Free pet! You know that if you get the lizard upside down and stroke it under its chin, it’ll “fall asleep”? It really works!

    And Steph, I have “exciting” classes Monday through Thursday. My first M/W class is exceptionally “exciting” though ………. :]

    Hey, I met Pam from City Team on Saturday night. I asked her if she knew you and she said, “Tia from HR?”. Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you!
