We have a million of these lizards around. In the summer, I get so used to seeing them that I don’t even notice them, but I don’t see many through the winter and now that they’re appearing everywhere, they scare me half to death because I’m walking around, minding my own business and they appear out of nowhere and go racing across my path.
This one looks really fat but when I googled it to see what they eat and to make sure they don’t bite or sting or do anything else most Texas critters seem to want to do, the pictures I saw make this one seem pretty normal.
In a month or so, I won’t even notice these lizards but for now, they’re still making me jump til I get used to seeing them everywhere.
I was just telling Vince that with the wasps showing up, it’s time to get used to getting stung. The first few stings really hurt but by the time I’m getting stung several times a week, I hardly even notice them any more. I dread getting those first few stings but I know they’re coming. Why does there have to be so many biting, stinging, scary things around here?
