The tea kettle was filled with water, and set on the stove to boil. Fresh, fragrant beans were ground. I reached up to open the cabinet above where the coffee filters were. As I swung the door open and looked up, something fell onto my face. That something was small and solid, and immediately scurried off me and onto the floor. I looked down, and saw a bright green gecko slithering away.
Who needs wake-up coffee when you can have a lizard encounter zap you to alertness?
