This morning as I woke up (and, as I do every morning since it's been here) I looked at the piece of wall where it had been during the night to make sure it was there and not in my bed. It was gone. I hoped it was outside. Not to be so. It had crawled down to the bottom of the wall, almost near to the floor at the left side of the bed.
I was going to get a bucket and scoop it up, but I procrastinated. I think today's lesson is DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! Just now out of the side of my eye I saw it crawling purposefully and rapidly (so much for being nearly dead) toward my clothes cupboard (which is against the wall). I ran toward the door of the cupboard which was slightly ajar and pressed it shut to ensure that it could not get in. But I think the lizard had an ability like mice and rats which can squeeze through all kinds of crevices. Before I knew it, the creature was in my cupboard! Aaargh! How am I going to get it out? And what am I going to wear today?
