Battle with a Lizard

I have always had a fear for lizards. More than its appearance, I have always been scared of a lizard falling over me.Strange enough!And now that I stay alone, I should say am petrified everytime I see a lizard at home.I take such extra care and precautions that no lizard enters my home

But....

Had to battle ( ya atleast in my case, its a battle) with a lizard yesterday night.Hapenned to come out of my room to drink some water in the midnight around 12.15a.m. I saw a lizard on the ceiling.Inspite of being sleepy, I decided to give up sleep and to chase this lizard out of my home.Immediately, sprayed some HIT ( mosquito/ insect repellent) on the lizard.I waited for the lizard to get drowsy, but I for sure was getting suffocated.The lizard did not move, so I threw a broomstick on to the ceiling and the lizard fell down..I opened my door, widnows ( ya at arnd 12.30midnight) so that the lizard could find its way out of my home.And there again, I am a little afraid of opening my door at midnight. But the lizard went into the broomstick and there I was dumbstruck , wondering how would I find out this lizard inside the broomstick.Picking up some courage and at the same time wonderign what if it jumps/ falls over me, I took the brromstick in hand and shook it firm. Oh, the lizard fell down and cropped into the pooja room cupboard. I defnitely did not want this to happen for the simple reason that the pooja room cupboard is pretty small and compact and it is indeed difficult to trace a lizard inside that.I try finding it inside, but in vain. Sweating profusely,I decide to give up and close all the opened doors and windows. When I came back to switch off the lights, I saw the same lizard wriggling on the floor.I am so happy by now, I thank god cos the lizard is out of the compact pooja room and now I can chase it again. I again open all the doors and windows, get the broomstick and sweep it out of my house.It fell down on the steps. I am still NOT relieved now. What if it finds the way to my door again? I go near the steps, further sweep it far away from the steps..until it went out of my sight.I breathe easy and say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED and lock all doors and windows and come back to sleep.By then, it was 1.00 a.m.I did not mind missing my sleep for about an hour, afterall, I managed to battle with a lizard and chase it away too! I AM A HAPPY PERSON.



Ps: When I narrated this incident to my amma, and my wudbe MIL,they just wondered if am allrite and why I need to miss my sleep and chase a lizard.
