A Pretty Impressive Sweet Guy

He came sneaking through the grass on a summer’s day. We jumped as we saw him heading our way. A Komodo dragon, lizard, iguana or dinosaur? We did not know, but some did not want to see more. The chips went flying, and the dip fell on the deck. I stayed to watch, because I thought what the heck? He came closer to me; his legs running quite fast. Got a really good look; he was actually a blast! He stopped quite suddenly about six feet away. I knew he could take me, but actually felt okay. So how are you? I asked him. He nodded his head. I threw him some potato chips which he bit ‘til they bled. His choppers were impressive; his chewing quite loud. Neighbors came out and took photos; it was quite a crowd. As easily as he had slunk up to give me a quick hi. He turned and was gone, a pretty impressive sweet guy.

Thank you Regina. I appreciate this comment; I do a lot of research. Always have a thick book on my lap, pouring through it for new ideas. The DICTIONARY or an ENCYCLOPEDIA; I love learning new words.

Whatever it was - it was six foot long and looked like a dinosaur alligator lizard. I saw a photo of it and thought "yikes" then I thought. Wait! What else could I think instead of yikes?
