I had a post in mind when I initially sat down here. And then Ray-the-Painter summoned me outside, where the World’s Largest Lizard (perhaps an exaggeration) was clinging to my outside wall.
Ray had already saved my bacon once today, when I locked myself out of the house, so he told me I was pretty much on my own for the lizard.
I tried to use a rake to knock him off the wall (the lizard, not Ray), but I missed and while I was searching for a different Knocking Implement, the scaly lizard crawled under my siding.
Where he now has wide-open access to my attic, which unfortunately is attached to my house and has inside access…to ME!
I’m posting this tale not to scare you, but in hopes that someone reading it will know anything about lizards and will save my life. (Full credit will be given.)
So who here knows about lizards, especially lizard home invasions? Here are my questions:
-Do you think the lizard might just stay where he is and crawl back out when Ray is finished working in the area? (If yes, Ray, you’re fired.)
-Do lizards like to hide under a) desks, or b) bedspreads?
-Are lizards attracted to people who don’t have as much body fat as they once had?
-Is it worth calling an animal control-type person to come out and fumigate the attic, thus driving down the bug population and eliminating the food source, thus driving him over to my neighbor’s house?
-Am I overly worrying about this?
I’m a silver lining type person, generally speaking, but I’m struggling with this one. The only good thing I can see is that my appetite is completely gone and my digestive system is in full swing. It’s like a Lizard Virus.
Any suggestions are appreciated. Also, should I be forced to move, I’d be grateful if anyone can offer a furnished bedroom (it doesn’t have to be huge, just lizard-free).
Okay, it’s time for another circuit of the house. I’ll be checking in with your blogs if the coast remains clear. Hope you’re having an awesome and lizardless week!
