I rescued a gecko

Swimming 'round in the pool.

He was covered in spots

I know! Totally cool.

He stuck on my hand

And he wouldn't let go.

No interest in leaving

Now what, well... so

What do I do now?

Gecko woke up from his dream.

He skittered up my arm

I let out a scream!

Please don't tell my friends

That I screamed like a girl.

They just barely forgot

Last week's thing with the squirrel.


This actually happened to me in Palm Springs, California.

Although I did NOT scream... well, at least not TOO much.

AND I am almost finished with the illustration for Gecko. Watch for it.
