I HATE Geckos

I HATE geckos so much!!! I don't care if they are 1/4 inch long or 14 inches long, I am scared to death of them.

Pops took some people out to dinner tonight and didn't get home until about 10:00 p.m. I was just finishing up the paper and taking it outside to the recycling bin when he came in the garage. He said, "Look what is one your car." It was a BIG FAT gecko. I was about to have a heart attack. He told me to get my camera so we could capture the moment.

After I took the picture, Pops was trying to push it off with the newspaper. It looked like it was trying to get into the cracks of the trunk. I was screaming for him to get it off before it got in the trunk. I hope my neighbors were not asleep because if they were, they aren't now. If it had gone into my trunk, I would never have driven this car again.

This reminds me of how much my sister hates geckos. Whenever she sees them in her house, she sucks them up in the vacuum cleaner. Last summer after sucking one up, she decided to go to the vacuum cleaner store and trade her vacuum in. She wasn't about to keep it. That thing would not die. The store owners made the gecko their pet.

I hate gecko's too! My last run-in with one involved it being on my BEDROOM curtains!! Yikes. Check out my blog for the story. I really don't understand why God created the gecko. I could go my entire life without seeing one again and be just fine!

My hubby catches them and puts them outside. G.R.O.S.S. Sometimes we just suck 'em up in the vacuum cleaner. Now I'm thinking twice about that. lol
