The tale of the leaping lizard

Before I get to my story I want to thank you all for your kind and caring words yesterday. You are all a great comfort to me and I don't know what I would do without you. 

OK, so the tale of the leaping lizard begins when a little green lizard appeared in my stocking at work. He's kind of on the sticky side so he stuck to my work table and kept me company while I went about my day.
He even talked to me and I would tell you what that last word stands for but it's kind of bad and I vowed not to say that word on the blog.


Last Tuesday I got to work and he was missing. I promptly posted a sign and offered a reward for his capture and return.  You'll notice the sign has FOUND written over top of it so you know already the story has a happy ending.

Later in the day I was doing my breakout which entails dragging a big cart full of frozen bakery products out of the freezer and going through said boxes  to pull the items I'll be baking the next day.
When I got a couple boxes down on one pile there was my poor lizard doubled over and frozen.  I thawed him out reshaped his deformed spine and gave him a nice little clear tape blanket to keep him in his spot.
Then I immediately posted a wanted sign for the person responsible
Oh and yes I do actually do some work during the day too. Considering I only have a leaping lizard to talk to I get plenty of time to do real work.

Card for the day...

Love the story about the leaping lizard. Glad you found him and got him thawed out. The card is great too. Hope no one steals the lizard again. Have a great day.

Maybe you should get a chip for your lizard. I would not like thinking someone I work with would do such a thing.

What an awful thing to do to your work buddy. You need someone sane to talk to after all. Glad you found him. Glad he's okay. I say that sign should say wanted DEAD. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and my very best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Normal is so overrated, much like reality. (And how did you know who the culprit was?)
