Lizard Love

Never have been much of a fan of lizards and reptiles, but my girlfriend is all excited about getting a lizard for a pet. She wants a bearded dragon and has been saving up for an aquarium and heater to make him a home. The aquarium is not so much to hold water as it is a cage with glass walls so you can see the lizard.

Evidently there is a whole sub culture of people who love lizards and reptiles. When she says the words bearded dragon, a lot of people get all excited about it and start telling her stories about their own strange pets. Even the lady who checked out my groceries at Kroger last night was wearing earrings with lizards, so I asked her about them and heard this whole big story about how she has always raised lizards and one just died after 14 years and she is still teary eyed when she talks about him.

Well, I don’t get it, but to each his own. If my girlfriend gets one, I hope she doesn’t expect me to hold it or take care of it when she goes out of town on weekends. That is too much to ask of me – I don’t think I could do it.
