If you find yourself in a situation where you are home on your own, ready to have some precious me quality time, only a pest in the name of brai39i -dessert lizard- decides to intrude and crash your party of one. The slimy, greyish pest with round probing eyes will zoom on the wall where your favourite couch is perched, hissing soundlessly, his tail flailing about, and you will find yourself screaming your lungs out while your legs jump to the furtherest corner of the room away from him.
Now that the night is ruined, the adrenaline rush and the loud thumping of your heart you can hear with your ears will erase all chances of relaxation from the agenda, you know you have three choices: 1- grab your keys and drive away, as fast as you can or 2- ignore the pest and try and keep an eye on him until someone who can kill him arrives home or 3- kill him yourself and get rid of the intruder once and for all.
I don’t know about you but I’ve never, ever killed a lizard before! They are too agile, and they zoom by when they sense danger. They are also very small and slimy which means they can easily hide behind all pieces of furniture, they seem to have a knack for choosing the heaviest unmovable objects around by the way. In the case of cockroaches you can spray them with pif paf and they will go all dizzy, but in the case of brai39i pif paf will do nothing to him, might as well inhale the thing and get the courage to attack you instead of running away from you. Leaving the lizard roaming the house is also not an option, he must be killed on the spot or else.
So what would you do? Do you have any recommendations on how to kill a lizard if there are no strong people who can aim a heavy slipper around?
