No More Geckos (or Rich's New Year's Resolutions part II)

It has been exactly 1 month since New Year's (and by the way my head still hurt from all that coconut juice), but still, it's important to remember our new year's resolutions. Here it is, the second installment of my list.

No more Geckos.

That's it. It's very simple, but I am through with Geckos. I'm over them. I never want to see another Gecko in my life. Done. Kaput. Finito los Geckos. Why? Well here are several reasons.

1. You can't trust them. Despite their cute smile, Geckos are dishonest, untrustworthy and a racist against ostriches and other big birds such as pelicans. That's a fact. I once asked a Gecko to buy me a Diet Fanta and he came back with a Diet Fresca. Pure racism. I rest my case.

2. They don't look you in the eye, and frequently stick out their tongue at you. Am I the only one that cares about manners?

3. A gecko married my high school sweetheart. And I will never, ever forgive you Gordon Gecko! Never!

So, there it is. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to stay away from Geckos. Are there any animals you don't like? Are afraid of? Stole your girl or boyfriend? Let me know in my comment box.

Enjoy your February, animals.

@anonymous (I love your name! Are you related to Anonymous who has posted millions of comments all over the internet?)

Geckos are Geeks and they are Greeks. Excellent point. And in Indonesia, they are called 'Gegos'. Isn;t that weird. Thanks for your comment!

Thanks for your comment. Spiders are definitely weird. They have 8 legs, and some of them are very hairy, like the tarantula. As a general rule, I don't like any animals with eight legs, but I guess that Octopuses (or is it Octopi?) are the exception. My dear friend Octavia is an Octupus, and she has eight legs and I had a baby with her. Oops... I've said to much. Have a great day Octavia, keep reaching for the stars!
