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 www.TheBeardedIris.com.
