APED: "there's a skink in my sink"

April 3rd, 2009 (07:14 pm)

There's a skink in my sink!
And now I'm on the brink
'cause it rattles the silverware, clinkity-clink.
Is it well? In the pink?
If it dies, will it stink?
Did it come in my house 'cause it wanted a drink?
Will it grow? Will it shrink?
Will it run if I blink?
Did it just tilt its head and then tip me a wink?
I'll help it outside. I can do that, I think.
It's strange to discover a skink in your sink.

this one was incredibly Dr. Seuss, and I say that as a complement.

That made me giggle like a giggling thing. Love me some Seussian homage! :) Very fun.

Last time I saw a skink, was last May. I was dressed like my userpic, in Jamestown, and it was sunning itself on the timbers of the fort.

Great for bugs, they are.

…I read this as “there's a skin in my sink” the first time through, and it was AMAZINGLY creepy.

A skink in the sink.

Please to ignore my bachelor squalor.

Actually, I was just thinking 'that's so cool!'

I have had a gecko under the fridge and skinks in the bookshelf, myself. Our old cat liked hunting.
