Breaking News from Singapore: Severe Weather and Soggy Geckos

By Dave Fox

It’s midnight and the weather is getting cantankerous. Heavy winds have just rolled in from the south. Or maybe the east. It’s hard to tell here in my apartment. But who cares where they’re coming from? It’s freaking windy out there! And in here! The doors and windows keep slamming. Somebody should go secure them.

The good news is the sound I heard earlier in my apartment, which feared might have been a bat, was probably not a bat. Geckos, on the other hand, are fleeing the storm and seeking cover in my bathroom.If I could just coax them out of the bathroom and into the kitchen, life would be good. They could snack on the ants, who are refusing to go into the ant traps.
