Cloudy vision.

Wanting clarity.

Waving your arms back and forth.

Suffocating with every breath.

Muffled screams for help.

You can't out run it . . .

The overwhelming feeling shakes you to your core. It has been haunting you for so long, but it is inescapable. Suddenly, rearing it's ugly head, you fight with all of the strength you can muster. Maybe, just maybe you will out run it this time. Dropping your guard, you allow yourself to think you're finally out of it's grasp. It squeezes you tighter leaving you almost breathless. Still you continue to try and draw a deep breath; struggling to fill your lungs. You thrust yourself forward; even if only for a fleeting moment. All of the sudden, it lunges out directly in front you again. You struggle to get away from the immense feelings that haunts you. Suddenly, you are tackled from behind and dragged to the ground. Now you are caught. All that running was in vein. You know better, but you try. At last, you are confronted. Completely at it's mercy.

Dunna, nunna, nunna, nunna . . . BATMAN!!

It must be pretty awesome being Batman. No, no, no. Not that Batman. Batman the Gecko. Sheesh! That's right . . . Batman! Not Batgirl. For crying out loud.

Last week, Leslie (aka The Bearded Iris) posted a few pictures on her Blog and Facebook of her family's gecko; more like his/her junk. Naturally, this caught my attention. It's not every day that you have lizard porn show up on your news feed. The following day Michele and Mel posted their bimonthly Ketchup With Us writing prompt. Coincidence? I don't think so. This time they are asking folks to write "In 57 words or less, tell us about whose shoes you’d like to walk in for a day." Immediately I thought of Leslie's family gecko, and knew I would need to take the liberty to walk in those tiny little lizard shoes for two days for this post (Michele and Mel, please don't start hurling ketchup bottles at me). She had mentioned that her family had been sick, and thought Batman would require a trip to the exotic vet because something was protruding from him. Then she went on to say "I'm sorry y'all, but I ain't payin' no $300 on gecko dick surgery." Famous last words from a mom! The things we do for our kids. I think it would be pretty awesome to Batman. He's one luckily lizard to get his peewee put back in surgically. 

Without further ado, I'm slipping into Batman's scaly little feet for this two day adventure. Do they make Prada shoes in his size? I wonder what the gecko from Geico wears? 


As I reached sexual maturity, there's no place I'd rather be. 

One of my peters popped out for the world to see.

It could have been a death sentence, but the woman caved. 

She took me to the vet, and I was saved.

Thanked 'em with a tea bag, and I left her 300 bucks in debt!

Special thanks to Leslie Batman for the inspiration! HE truly is a lucky gecko. If you want to follow along his little adventure to adulthood, check out "Diary of a Sexually Maturing Leopard Gecko" at
