... caught a friggin' lizard and bit the tail off it (or perhaps the tail "fell off" as a defense mechanism... okay!? then) and, well, we saw the tail moving around, squirming and wrigglin' and, well, we took the tail (er I did) and put it in an empty animal cracker/cookie plastic bin dealie from Costco and, well, we watched that friggin' tail move around...
The things you do for your children.
(Dave is holding the tail... totally not me! Not that I wouldn't do it but given the choice... yup, Dave's gonna do it.)
