I found a tiny gecko today on the fifth floor near the freight elevator. At least I think it’s a gecko. I almost stepped on him. Bending down I discovered he was incredibly cute, so I scooped him up in my empty coffee mug and took him back to my office.
I thought he would become an office pet or some such. However, both Janice and Olivia seemed to be frightened of him, so I decided I’d take him outside and release him.
Unfortunately before I got around to it, he escaped from the mug. I didn’t think he could escape but he did. Olivia is not very happy. She put her feet up on the desk to avoid having her toes nibbled on. She said if she sees him he’ll be “one dead little creature.”
I put up a sign with this picture and the words, “Have you seen me?”
I’m not sure what my boss would think if she was here. She’s oddly squeamish about spiders, but I think geckos eat spiders. If, indeed, this is a gecko.
