It's Lizard Season - Oh Joy

The office I now work at is downstairs from the company I used to work at.  So all in all I have worked in this office building for about 5 years.  And every year it happens - lizard season.

Every day this week I have walked into one of these.

My morning welcoming committee comes in all shapes and sizes and make me want to run to my chair and prop my legs up on the back of my desk.  As I sit here and type - I am TOTALLY freaked out.  I know I sound like a baby but seriously these things are so fast and make sudden movements.  I used to catch lizards as a kid and now I am totally freaked out. (Can you tell.) 

When I worked upstairs we had one fall from the ceiling.  Another time we were getting ready to go to lunch and my boss/friend felt something on her shirt and a lizard was clinging to her shirt.  She was trying to shake it off and I did the only reasonable thing I could do.  Scream like a girl and jump on the couch.  No joke - I am a baby!! 

Well time to get some work done in between my uncontrollable anxiety.  Have a great day!!


  1. Pretty sure I would have screamed too! LOL!

  2. I would not be able to work there. UGH! I am not a fan of lizards. Luckily we don't have any in New England. :)

  3. LOL...I would freak out too! When I lived out in SC, one got into my apartment!!! I jumped on the bed and my 60 lb dog followed me. I jumped from the bed, ran to the kitchen got a cup and threw it over the lizard. We jumped back on the bed then trying to figure out what to do now...we finally pushed it to the door but there was a lip so I had to scoop the lizard and then I threw the whole cup into the hallway and shut the door! Needless to say, I got a thing to cover the bottom of the door so no more lizards would get in. I feel ya girl!

  4. When I was in middle school, all the boys would put lizards on their ears & wear them like earrings until the teacher would see it. I never understood the fascination...
