Dunedin, FL, 1995
John and Greg chase me around with lizards hanging from their pinched fingers, ready to tackle me and put the poor hopeless reptile on my ear, as if an earring. They find this hysterical. My bully brothers pinch their mouths and the lizards close it on my earlobe.
Not this time. I run as fast as my little legs can take me, and swing myself up into my ramose magnolia. I imagine it’d be a challenge to climb a tree with lizards in one’s hand. I am right.
