Bon Voyage

by statia on June 13, 2007

Our gecko made it home safe and sound. This is definitely one of the funniest and weirdest experiences of my life. We have a world traveled gecko. And he’s totally rubbing it in on the other lizards.

“Yeah man, I went to Des Moines. It was awesome. No no, you have no idea what you’re talking about, the natives, they’re NICE people. Seriously, do you believe everything you watch on TV? I was there. I have experience.”

Never in a million years did I expect that they would actually call us and ship him back. Seriously. It’s one of those stupid segments you see on the local news.

Thanks La Quinta Inn, for taking good care of our gecko and mailing him back to us. And thanks DHL for getting him here.

Excellent news, but I’m entirely way too curious how this task was accomplished. Details?

Hahaha seriously?! Who found him, and where was he?

Iowa is a great state. I’ve been all over the United States and to two other countries, and this is the best place I’ve found to raise my kids.

For the most part we’re friendly, intelligent, hard-working, nice, honest, trustworthy… I’ll be here for awhile longer, until my kids are grown, before I move on.

And you know Des Moines has to be a party town. Oh what stories he has to tell.

I say you call up the local media and tell them the story.

But did he get his picture taken in front of any Iowa landmarks?

heh heh ;-)

That’s amazing that you got him back!

Awww, how sweet is this?!!! Yay, for nice people everywhere!

Am I the only one hearing your gecko speak like Cheech?

Oh my god! Who would have thought? And here I imagined him running slow motion with the “born free” song playing in the background.
