This is one of those times ----
Last night I was leaving Ghetto # 1 in Williamsburg VA, I'd finished my patrol and was on the way to my next site. All of a sudden a huge black man comes running up in a panic.
"You gotta do something, there is a lizard in my apartment"!!!!
OK I thought to myself, -----was it --- GODZILLA !
Naw to big , maybe it was --
A Komodo Dragon !!
( naw wrong part of the world)
Perhaps a Gila Monster --
( I won't lookin forward to messin with one)
More than likely someones Iguana had escaped --
That I could deal with !
When I asked the man how big the lizard was he indicated about the size of a cat with his hands.
We entered his apartment which desperately needed a Rug Doctor.
He pointed to an area by the patio door where a beam of sunlight was shining on the carpet.
"It was right there" he said.
Hmmmmm ? I thought probably catching some sunlight.
I moved some furniture around, trying to find the critter, no luck.
Suddenly the guy screamed - THERE IT IS --
He spooked me when he yelled so I jumped back and turned around,
This is what I saw --
3 or 4 inches long, so small it could slip between the sliding glass door and the stationary piece.
I opened the glass door, slid the screen door open stomped my foot and it ran out.
I couldn't help myself, I had to laugh.
A 6'4" man terrified of a Five-lined Skink.
Oh well mission accomplished, the resident was saved.
Just another story of the Naked City !
