Our Pet

I screamed and screamed.

“AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!! OH MY GOD, oh my god, what is it?” I screamed while zipping myself into our mosquito cage on the bed.

Yes, there was a lizard in our apartment and yes, we are the proud owners of a mosquito net bed cage.

Abe did no harm to the lil’ liz. He gently coaxed it out the door with a stick.

Reptile mezuzah.

In the morning, as we were leaving for the office, we found the little guy waiting for us. Magically, he had changed color! We have affectionately named him Steve after our floor cleaning robot back home.

Does anyone know what kind of reptile Steve is?

    He looks like a gecko! I love them and always think of them as good luck when they show up on my walls, in tropical locations. So far none in Shenzhen yet, I don’t think they can get past the security at Oriental Ginza. Also, I name everything Steve too!

    It is a gecko. I have quite a few on my front porch and I am happy to have them–they love mosquitos. A very good household god in New Orleans.
