And the summer fun begins!

Setup: Child #2 is 15 years old. Child #4 is newly 9.

Child #2: Can I put a chameleon on your head?

Child #4: (stops sipping her drink and frowns, thinking): Okay.




                              Ouch!

It's going to be an interesting summer...

Barbara Martin said...

No one asked the poor chameleon about location hopping, and summer has barely begun.

Jason said...

Heh, I don't know if I would be okay with someone putting a lizard on my head. Little claws seem like a bad idea on my poor head.

Sounds like you're going to have some fun.

Amy said...

haha I love how the chameleon is reaching out for her head. So cute

Teresa said...

I'm with Barbara. Does the chameleon get any say in where he (she) perches? Have a great summer, Barrie. Enjoy them while they're with you!! They all grow up too fast.

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

Yup.

You are so in for a wild summer.

cool! how are the eggs coming?

Barrie said...

Kaye: Sadly, five have shriveled; one even more than the others. However, I did read that sometimes you think an egg won't produce and, surprise! So, I'm hoping not all the five are goners. And...the other 18 are going strong. Also, both chameleons shed this past week. So, yay! I bet that was WAY more reptile info than you were expecting!

A chameleon hair ribbon. Cool.

Well, that is different!

Beth said...

I had no idea that creature was so big!
Younger siblings are so trusting and vulnerable, aren't they?
Enjoy the summer! ;)

How fun!
I remember putting lizards on my head in Jr. High, but never one as big as a chameleon!

Barrie said...

So, Solvang Sherrie, it's a Southern California thing? Ha!

And, no to Barbara and Teresa, I don't think the chameleon had much say in the matter. :)

Travis Erwin said...

Ahh ... the memories they will have.

Bee said...

I'm pretty sure that chameleons are more fun than chickens! So pretty against dark hair as well . . .

Gotta love summer!

Hey, at least #2 asked permission.

Bina said...

How cute! That thing is so pretty. How are the eggs doing?

While this particular incident hasn't happened here, I can certainly identify with it!
