15 seconds saved me from getting attacked by a gecko!

Yesterday was the transition day and it went fairly well. My sentiments haven’t swayed much, but it’s my job so I will continue to excel at it in the best way possible for the customers’ sake.

I will be honest with you the day did not start well. Tuesday night, I opted to wait until Wednesday morning to take a shower and wash my hair. I never do that, because I don’t like being rushed. Our little humble abode has two bathrooms and WareBear’s just happens to have the shower. That’s fine, I’ll take the claw-foot bathtub any day. I stripped down to my birthday suit and turned on that steaming hot water to enjoy myself in nice hot shower (or so I thought). That water felt so good and much needed. As I reached over to get my shampoo, I saw it. The clear outline of a gecko swaying its head from side to side burned into the retinas of my eyes. My entire body froze. The scream came from the depths of hell.



I don’t think WareBear has ever jumped out of bed as fast as he did yesterday morning. When I heard that bathroom door fly open, the blood started rushing back to every part of my body as I flew past him – naked and wet.

[out of breath] “A gecko. In the shower. Find it”

“Sevi, I can’t see. My eyes need to adjust to the light.”

“I swear, it’s in there. Find it”

[looks in shower, on the floor, behind the toilet] “Sevi, it’s gone.”

“I’m not going back in there.” [stomps off (naked) dripping water on the floor]

I washed my hair in a claw-foot bathtub yesterday morning. Can I add that skill to my resume?!? All 5’10” of this whole lotta woman managed to shampoo and condition her hair in a claw-foot bathtub. While this was happening, good ol’ WareBear was taking stabs at me on Facebook.

You see, he has jokes.

As I read this status and the comments related, he proceeded to joke that I could’ve saved 15 minutes on car insurance…

Take a glimpse at the cute baby and the cute top my mom refuses to give me!

Jerk. Prick. Asshole. I love you too.

In his defense, he did make it up to me and in the best way possible.

He took me to see my precious baby boys, Kylan and Ezra. The newest addition, Ezzy, is getting so big and starting to really show his personality! He makes the cutest little sounds (talking up a storm) and doesn’t want to sit still, he woke up shortly after I arrived (aka, I woke him up). No pictures of Kylan, because he was attached to my dad’s hip and refused to come to me (even though I woke him up as well).

Can you tell I am the best aunt ever? Waking kids up from naps and shit, thats how I roll!

So happy Thursday people – please feel free to laugh at my panicked moment or share one of your own!

    My aunt and uncle lived off a dirt road in California, on top of a hill. One night I was coming in from the bottom of the driveway and when I hit the motion sensor lights, a large black hurling ball came flying at me from the landscaping. I screamed bloody hell and went flying into the house, slamming the door behind me. Took probably 20 minutes for my pulse to resume to normal and them to convince me that it was just the frog that chills by their door. That was likely 20+ years ago and they still laugh and laugh and laugh…

    I still despise frogs.

      I snorted while reading this because I was laughing so hard! We all have our moments, once a leaf fell from a tree and I thought it was bat. My dad still gives me a hard time about it.

    This would probably scare me, too! But, I don’t mind gecko’s so I would have gotten back in the shower. 😉

    i believe a gecko in the shower would scare me more than a murderer.

    We have four pet geckos, so I don’t think I’d be too concerned if any of them were in the shower with me unannounced. I’d probably just be confused as to how they got out of their tanks and into the shower. However, I nearly DIED the other day when I found a SCORPION in my foyer!! Eff Texas, man. Eff it hard. And there was one day a month or so ago when I went to put my body wash on my loofah only to find a spider in the loofah. Pretty much freaked at that too.

    […] the only naked you are going to get here is with the great leap from the shower (all because of a gecko). The worst part, I just mentioned that I was stark naked and I have a little bit of class to keep […]
