I suddenly recalled this awful incident and feel compelled to blog.
I was at the gym last week. I happily walked over to the windows, open them up one by one to let the fresh air come in (you know how the gym sometimes stink after people worked out with air-con on!). Then I felt a splat on my right forearm. I thought it was a leaf, looked down on it, but saw a big, black lizard. I jumped and SCREAMED at the top of my lungs – I couldn’t decide which one I did first. Or maybe I did both at the same time. The poor lizard leapt away for his dear life onto the floor, but I was still in my screaming mode until I felt safe enough to shut up.
OMG. I am so useless.
I felt a like a ball of emotions – I felt like an idiot for screaming like an idiot (thank goodness I didn’t have the opportunity to scare the sh*t out of whoever was in the room cos I was alone). I felt sorry for the lizard for scaring him. I felt very angry at the lizard for scaring me. I felt like hunting him down to make sure he was very far away from me (maybe it’s a she but you know I’m heavily influenced by the french now, they like to use masculine particles to refer to things if not specified). I felt like my forearm was dirty because the lizard was really, black. I felt like going to wash my arm but decided it’s too gu-niang. I felt lazy too. I felt disgusted by myself for being lazy to wash my arm after being ‘tainted’ by a dirty lizard.
So the next thing I did was to distract myself with Jason Mraz on my ipod and just worked it out.
I am ok with lizards on the streets, on the roads, on the wall, 10cm infront of me, but not ON me! YUCKS!
oh gosh lol its kind of random how i even came here but i just kind of typed I HATE LIZARDS in the yahoo search engine. anyway i had like almost the same situation as you. this brown thing just landed on my right arm too and i thought it was a branch except it was brown.
well i was at home and i was sticking my hand out of the window and somehow it was night and then i simply like literally flung it and it flew up and landed on the floor with a splat then i ran out screaming.
and then somehow i think the same lizard is in my room all the while and yesterday i saw a baby lizard? what the heck i really hope it wasn’t reproducing.
and then at night it scares me because lizards makes weird noises. somehow.
oh well but thanks for sharing about what the lizard is thinking. gah this is so random. 🙂
