It Wasn’t the Talking Gecko

22 Jun

So mom went out Saturday to get the mail from the mailbox.  There she was somewhat still in her pajamas and barefooted.  Us animals know because we were all watching her from the front door.  Me, Houdini, Hemi and Mouse Girl all bundled together with the heat from the sun coming through the storm door looking out for our mom.  You know just in case something happened we would all be there for her.

She made it to the mailbox.  We saw.  We were so proud of her.  Then she started back.  That’s when it happened.  Mom squealed higher than me, jumped higher than the purr things and then ran faster than Houdini to the front door.  We didn’t know what happened.  All we heard was hysterics and heavy breathing.  Daddy went outside with his magnifying glass in one hand and mom’s iPhone camera in the other.  All he could make out from mom was on the house in the corner.

He came back in snorting a bit. He asked mom to look at the gazillion pictures he took to see if he got the guy that made her try out for a triathlon.  Much to mom’s amazement, he did.  Not so bad for a guy with limited vision – he got the cute little guy.  I wonder if he wants to come in and help us out when mom is running late for work?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

    Brother I understand your momma… that are bonsai dragons, they can spit fire and they eat mom-princesses… My momma pushed the alarm button in a howltel once as such a dragon lured on the ceiling of her howltel room…and she was glad that the firefighters came and removed that beast before the whole howltel was burning… boy that was a little expensive, butt better safe&poor than sorry, right?

    Exactly! Of course us anipals – I think daddy including – wanted to play with the little guy before he skimmered off into the unknowns. Mom on the other hand was standing on top of the kitchen island begging for us to sell the Hotel Thompson and move ASAP. Snorts – she’s a funny human like that. XOXO – Bacon

    YUCKIES… Mom is a BIG WIENIE about wiggly stuff that’s even REMOTELY snake-like and sadly, that beautifully colored THING is! She would have screeched and run for cover!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Trust me cousin. My mom did enough running and screaming for the entire neighborhood. It took a lot of persuading from daddy to get her off of the kitchen island. Of course he did it comically. He threw several dollar bills up at her. Now *that* was hilarious. XOXO – Bacon

      YES THEY DO. Now if me and the other anipals saw it, we would just want to play with it, especially the purr things. That would have be fun to watch too. But then again mommy dancing on top of the kitchen island was kind of hysterical… especially when daddy threw a $1.00 bill at her. Snorts – Now *that* was funny XOXO – Bacon

      I’m not sure my friend. My mom didn’t stop to introduce herself… unless the screaming was an introduction – snorts with piggy laughter. But he was still out there when daddy snapped the pictures. XOXO – Bacon

    Wonder what she would have done if it actually *did* speak to her? 😉

      O.M.P. Mom says it doesn’t wear white gloves therefore it doesn’t need to ‘speak’ to her. Snorts. My mom is weird. XOXO – Bacon
