My Morning Coffee Mates and and an Awesome Eighties Flashback

My Early morning Espresso Mates and and an Brilliant Eighties Flashback


After replying to opinions and actively playing a little bit of Borderlands 2 (Final Vault Hunter Manner), I really don’t have a whole great deal to do in the mornings listed here.  Sara is normally at function – carrying out the “graveyard” 11 PM – 7 AM change – so when I get up all-around 5 AM, the dwelling is somewhat vacant.  I say “relatively empty,” as typically I get to share some quality time with the area indigenous wildlife.  This morning, my early morning espresso was shared with Moe, Larry, and Curly, a few of the minor gecko lizards that are so frequent to any tropical local weather all over the environment.  These individual geckos like to cling out in our sink, and for some reason they activity an unconventional whiteish coloration.  If you haven’t found geckos in advance of, they are truly fairly adorable.  They like to try to eat bothersome insets (like people horrible gentleman-eating spiders that Sara ordinarily has to offer with for me) and just like to cling all around the partitions waiting around patiently for their subsequent six (or 8) legged snack.   When we had been living in a rather much open up air household down in Dauin, the very little men preferred to cling about the mild sconces alongside the walls, as the bugs would unerringly fly toward any supply of gentle.  Get em, men!!

We also had a tuko lizard in the home down in Dauin, which is fairly significantly a giant mutant gecko.  They are also pretty interesting, but their sheer sizing can be a bit disconerting.  They will also bite if taken care of, but I would believe the only folks making an attempt to take care of them would be trappers looking for to smuggle them up to China and collect the $3-6,000 bounty on them.  (The Chinese use them in medicinal remedies – probably some thing possessing to do with rigidity or longevity, which they all – like tiger cojones and elephant tusks – they all seem to address.)  For that motive, tuko’s are thought of endangered in the Philippines and there are civil and felony penalties in put for trapping and/smuggling them.  Heh – and test to make clear that 1 to the fellas in the hoosgow…….

The geckos also utilized to present some amusement when they were finding into territorial disputes close to the gentle sconces, chirping maniacally and chasing just about every other in circles close to the walls.  Every now one particular would seize the other’s tail and a chaotic miniature wrestling match would ensue.  The only downside to having them in the home were being the very little poops that they would depart behind.  In fact, the gecko poops weren’t all that lousy – the tuko crap piles on the other hand were fairly horrible, and if you weren’t viewing your footing, you could obtain by yourself sliding across the flooring atop a lenthening patch of environmentally friendly tuko leavings.  Yeah, I did that a lot more than a few times……

My dad noticed the movie on our sink geckos and reminded me that back again in 1985, I experienced named 3 lobsters (set for meal) Moe, Larry, and Curly as very well.  I grew a bit attached to the lobsters (I hadn’t discovered that you in no way give dinner names, nevertheless) and commenced a campaign to no cost them.  It did not go more than that properly, and – in spite of my most impassioned pleas – they nevertheless finished up in the pot.  Ah, effectively.  At least my coronary heart was in the correct location! 

Dad was also variety plenty of to dig out a image of me keeping up two of the trio.  I imagine the paper indication that is taped to my upper body says something like “Free Moe, Larry and Curly!”

Oh pricey god – the Eighties.  I imagine I was 17 in this.  Not sure.
