Is that a lizard in your pocket?

by statia on June 11, 2007

So, um, remember that lizard we lost en route to Pennsylvania?

The hotel called. They found him.

Is there anyone in the Des Moines area who could possibly ship him to us? We’d pay for it obviously, but we’re having a hard time finding someone who ships lizards.

I know it sounds like such a stupid request, but you know, we kind of liked him and want him back.

That? Is hilarious! I can imagine the call: “Um, m’am…did you loose a lizard when you stayed at our hotel?”

So are they charging room and board for him, living it up in the hotel with access to the gym, wi-fi and spa?

Ok, enough lizard jokes. Hope you get him back home safe and sound!!

I’m cracking up that they even called. About a lizard! I hope you can find someone to ship him to you.

Wow – I don’t think I’ve ever known anyone who lost their lizard before. I wish I could help but I don’t know anyone in Des Moines. Maybe you should try Craigslist if you don’t get results here?

I told you I could do it…… I’d just have to brush up on live animal transport and such.

My sister lives in Des Moines. Yes, she would do it (I think. I haven’t asked, but I’ll ask.).

Let me know if you don’t get a better offer.

Ok, one more (my husband came up with this one): I hope he didn’t get into the mini bar, those things are expensive!

I’m maybe 3 hours from there, so if nothing else turns up, shoot me an email and I’ll turn it into a road trip.

Holy crap! I can’t believe he’s been found – that’s so cool!

Craig will be devastated – it spoils his big plan. Heh!

Yayyyyy! That’s so awesome! I’m glad you found him all safe and sound!

What are the odds that they’d find a gecko that was lost? Serendipity, I tells ya.

Just found out I’m going to Des Moines around July 1. If you need me to get him, lemme know…

(And I might need instructions on how to mail a lizard. I’m guessing a manilla envelope and a couple of stamps won’t cut it…)

Maybe you can hook the lizard up with a GPS and let him find his way?
