lizard king

While deadlines are here, Burma has problems, the Iranian president said there’s no gay people in Iran, and a whole lot of other crap is running through my mind, I hear rumblings in the bushes not 5 feet from me, the leaves are shaking, and I hear something moving around. From a medium high falls out a lizard with no tail. Was it just attacked and hence it fell out, or was it just clumsy? I seldom ever see lizards in my backyard, so this was a trip. The lizard king let me get up to just one foot or so from it and it still didn’t move. It scurried away like an alligator, looking ridiculous.
