Strangers in the kitchen

So I was making breakfast on Sunday morn and I opened the cupboard to grab the Vegemite and what should jump out at me but this...
bloody big vicious gecko
Well, OK so he clung onto the golden syrup but he clung with attitude, right out at me.

ok, so you know what a normal person whould have done if they had opened the cupboard and seen that?
Shut the door, calmly walked away and hoped it would be gone when they next opened the cupboard.

I think I would have cried. The last thought on my mind would have been "Hark! Let me get my camera so that I may photograph this creature clinging to my condiment for all the world to see." Thanks for thinking that and sharing it with us, though.

I think I'd rather have that thing in my kitchen than mice.

Dude, you had a gecko in your pantry.

That's so cool.

we had a salamander on the porch last night.

not as cool as a lizard on the syrup, i guess...

Ugh. I am so having the heeby-jeebies just looking at it! Crazy eyes, though!

He he! He looks like a sugar-coated jube! What on earth was he doing in your cupboard?
