Has it occurred to you that I like lizards?
They are so wiggly and cute! The little fence lizards develop the most gorgeous
curvy line when they run! This whiptail has always had a special place in my
affection after I caught one in my high school classroom once. Mother Superior
questioned me as I passed her office on the way to release the lizard outside,
since I was supposed to be in class. I held out my hand to show it to her,
never for a moment expecting her to scream and jump up on her desk. She
startled me so I dropped the poor lizard, and had quite a time of it catching
him in her office. He could get a much better grip on her carpet than on the
slippery classroom floor, and having her screaming didn't help my nerves. I
never meant to frighten the poor woman! Fortunately, all of us survived the
ordeal. I'm sorry, but remembering it still cracks me up.
