When a dead body cannot beat a lizard’s tail!
“What’s that? What’s that?” Liza brushed her hair with her hand and shook her head, left and right!
A lizard dropped from her head and ran quickly under the sofa,
… minus it’s tail!
“Eee…eik!” Liza felt so disgusted as she pulled out the tail that entangled in her hair!
She cried and she moaned …. as she washed and scrubbed her head and hair, vigorously!
Amusing silent stifled giggles…
Nobody dared to laugh, except their papa…
“Dead bodies, you are not scared! You are scared of lizards!” He loved to tease dangling that cold-blooded reptile in front of her!
I empathized with Liza as I found myself in similar situations before, fear of lizards and reptiles, herpetophobia 😥
Many of my nursing friends agreed, too! Some would run away, or jump on top of chairs and beds!
It is true, even a dead body cannot beat a lizard’s tail! 🤦🏻♀️
