"Leapin Lizards"

When I worked at the Pine Tree Pet Shop with our daughter, they had gotten in a special order. It was a "Jesus Christ", or "Frilled" Lizard. You know the one's that rear up and run on their back legs (like walking on water). Anyway it was after the store had opened, and Carrie says, "Hey Mom, you get to the other side of the aisle, I will let the lizard loose so we can see how he runs". I said, "No Way, not while the store is open, later"!

Anyway, I am stocking shelves and Carrie yells, "Here he comes Mom"! I let out a sigh, and just as she let go of the lizard this little old lady with the knee high stockings on under her dress, and a cane crosses the aisle. All of a sudden the lizard goes right up the old lady's dress, using her knee high hose to get right under her dress. She screamed in a panic, frozen, with this lizard under her dress. He was quite big actually.

Carrie yells, "Oh don't worry, he doesn't bite"! Oh yeah, that made her feel better. Anyway what does Carrie do? Runs up to the old lady, goes right up under her dress, and she is talking saying, "I almost got him off, he is stuck on your bloomers"! lol lol lol ...:)

That poor woman, she was a good sport though and laughed. As usually I shrug my shoulders and said, "That's Carrie"! lol lol lol...:)

HAHA! Okay, I'd freak out if a lizard got in my underpants. I'd try to play it cool, but no.

I don't think I could play it cool with that!
