Gartrella the Lizard Resides in My Geology Class

Ricoya Black, Opinions Editor

I was sitting in my geology class wondering what weird or exciting thing was going to happen that I could write about for this story when my classmate told me to turn around real quick. When I did, I saw a student petting a big ol’ lizard! Okay, I may be exaggerating a bit. But that thing was huge and it scared the life out of me. It was usually in a cage so I did not know it was that big nor did I care to find out. You mean to tell me that of all the options, like guinea pig, or hamster, our class pet had to be a reptile?? Where I come from, you tell lizards to go away, not pet them! We’re petting lizards in class now? It is beyond me!
