Warning: This post is not for lizard-lovers (if there are such people), or I suppose reptile-lovers, in general.
So I discovered a lizard in my room. This huge, fat lizard with bulging bloodshot eyes, wagging its tail and staring at me with the creepy eyes every lizard possesses. Alright I’m exaggerating, obviously. It wasn’t wagging its tail. Lizards don’t wag their tails. Nor did it have bulging bloodshot eyes. Nor was it a huge, fat one. In fact, it was a baby lizard. But, it was not cute, at all, and it was staring at me with creepy eyes. 😐
A couple of weeks back I’d discovered a lizard (that was a big one) in my kitchen.. That’s not that bad. You don’t live in your kitchen. But my own room? Who’s the Universe kidding? And who was the Universe kidding when it created creatures like lizards?!
Whether it’s evolution, or God.. or whatever the hell the world-creating superpower’s supposed to be, couldn’t have the lizards been omitted from the plan? All reptiles, for that matter? Or maybe just home lizards? This is just unfair. I know life’s not supposed to be fair, but that unfair? Even God can’t be that inhuman. And God’s supposed to be nice! :O
Thanks to the stupid lizard, I have now shifted to the other room for tonight’s sleep. 😐
I mean, look at its nerve – it’s coming into my house (well, my parents’, but that’s not important), in my room, and driving me out of there! And it’s like, five hundred times smaller than me. Yes yes, size is no guarantee of power (I mean, look at Ginny Weasley :P), but still.
It’s not it’s doing something to me, the lizard.. but that doesn’t matter. It’s more like the fact that it exists.. you know? (Lizards are to humans like me what Severus Snape was to James Potter, and what spiders are to Ron Weasley.) It’s basically just … creepy. There’s really no other word for it.
Although most of my friends hate lizards as much as me.. reading this post again does make me wonder if I’m over-reacting? Actually, I’m not. If I’ll go and see it I’ll probably freak out once again. I don’t think I’m over-reacting. I think I finally figured out what my Boggart would be. 😐
But do all of you hate/are scared of them as much as me? Anybody with any good suggestions on how to get over this or how to keep them away? 😦
I’ve heard peacock feathers keep lizards away. That true? I’ll get a pet peacock if that’s what it takes.
How does one expect me to sleep, knowing there’s a lizard on the ceiling above, ready to fall on my face if its grip breaks? (Alright I know that can’t possibly happen.. but it can! :O)
I wish for a world without reptiles…
Okay since that might spoil the ecological balance and everything, I’ll tone my wish down a bit for the greater good. 8)
I wish for a world without home lizards…
Do you? 😛
Update: 10 Most Disturbing Animals on Earth. Never thought I’d be saying this, but.. they make the lizards look almost okay.. :O
