Our New Pet

wHO KNEW GEKOS COULD BE SO FRIENDLY?

sO rUSTY AND i LIVE ON THE nORTH shORE OF hAWAII. iTS PRETTY COUNTRY, SMALL TOWN. wE LOVE IT. wE HAVE ROOSTERS AND CHICKENS THAT KEEP AWAY THE CENTIPEDES, AND GECKOS THAT KEEP AWAY COCKROACHES. wELL AT LEAST THATS WHAT i THOUGHT THEY DID. wE HAVE A WINDOW IN OUR BEDROOM RIGHT BY OUR COMPUTER. tHIS VERY LARGE LIZARD WOULD ALWAYS BE HEADING OUT WHEN i GOT HOME. tHEY LOVE SUN BATHING ON OUR FRONT PORCH, WHO WOULDN'T.tHESE ARE NORMAL GECKO ACTIVITIES. bUT YESTERDAY i DISCOVERED A NEW PAST TIME FOR THESE FRIENDLY REPTILES.
a GECKO PLAYING wii? nOW THATS AN ACTIVITY i WAS UNAWARE OF. i COULD TAKE THIS GECKO TO THE CIRCUS AND MAKE A BUCK. dON'T KNOW HOW GOOD HE IS AT wii BOXING BUT WE'RE ON TO SOMETHIN'. tHIS IS NOT THE END OF OUR NEW PETS TRICKS. tHIS LIZARD WAS VERY TINY SO TO GET A GOOD PICTURE i HAD TO GET EXTREMELY CLOSE. i COULDN'T BELEIVE HOW BRAVE HE WAS. sO i THOUGHT, BEING THE ANIMAL LOVER THAT i AM, THAT i COULD TOUCH THIS THING. tOUCH HIM i DID. eVEN BETTER HE JUMPED RIGHT ON TO MY HAND. hE PROCEEDED TO CLIMB UP MY ARM ON MY SHOULDER. hE MUST HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THE HEAT THAT WAS RADIATING FROM MY SKIN AFTER A FEW HOURS AT THE BEACH.

i GAVE rUSTY THE CAMERA AND TOLD HIM TO GET A PICTURE OF THIS. tHE GECKO LIKES PHOTOGRAPHY AND JUMPED FROM MY BACK ONTO THE CAMERA. rUSTY WAS A LITTLE STARTLED BUT NOT NEARLY AS STARTLED AS WHEN THE gECKO JUMPED FROM THE CAMERA TO HIS FACE! i AM LAUGHING HISTARICALLY AS RUSTY sPITS AND THE GECKO LANDS BACK ON HIS HAND. aPARENTLY rUSTY DOESN'T LIKE BABY GECKO FEET IN HIS MOUTH. i WAS JUST SAD i DIDN'T CAPTURE IT ON FILM. tHE BEST TRICK OF ALL IS THE GECKO EVEN HELPED ME WRITE THIS bLOG. oKAY HE PROBABLY JUST LIKED THE HEAT FROM THE COMPUTER. wHAT A CUTIE! hE SERIOUSLY HUNG OUT FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS. cAN i KEEP EM' dAD?! cAN i?!

1. Cute pet.
2. Should should volunteer to be his agent. after all Australian geekos have a niche in the advertising world with insurance. Maybe Hawaiian geekos could corner the gaming market.
3. At least he has good taste and a good eye for the hot ladies.

Cool pet! Can you bring him to Idaho? Carina says, I like your pet!
Wes says, Can I have one? He would help Arizona look much greener.
