A cute, little lizard-let’s call him “Gizzy”-was sitting on my outdoor rocker.
I said to him, “I have been gone only a short while and you took it upon yourself to become an imposition.”
“Get off my rocker!”
Gizzy was quick to respond, “You’ve been off your rocker for many years!”
I then relinquished the rocker to this astute, little fella and quietly slipped inside without an argument—leaving a ‘loose screw’ behind.
