A Lizard in the fridge?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Our Father's Houses Realty

My 2nd grader has his first science project to do - an insect collection.  I sent him out with 4 ziplock bags and instructions to find 4 live bugs, bag 'em and freeze 'em.  My 2nd grader comes running back with his first catch - a grasshopper.  We ooh and aah over it, and he heads to the freezer.  Then an ant, then a fly. 

My 4 year old comes running in and says he's caught a lizard.  "A live one?" I ask, rather horrified at the thought of a lizard getting loose in my bedroom.

"No, it's dead.  See?" And he produces a rubber lizard. 

"Oh, that's a beautiful lizard!" I placate him.

So this morning, I open the freezer for Eggo's, and...

frozen plastic lizard

Gotta love raising boys!

Did it freak you out? Even for a minute? I would have screamed.

That sounds kind of cruel for some of God's creatures. I think there are better ways to create an insect collection, although I'm not for creating such collections anyway, but nonetheless....
