Reason #243 why the lizard population is declining in our neighborhood:
Emme: “MOM! I caught another lizard in the front yard.”
Cailey: “YES. And she let me hold it. It was my first time ever!”
Emme: “But then it’s eye popped out.”
Me: “Oh,” I offer weakly as I begin to pat down little pockets. “And then what did you do with the lizard?”
Emme: “We let him go. But, he ran into the street and got run over.”
RIP, one eyed lizard, RIP.
