Positively Reptile

Now that the weather is warmer, when I open the front door in the afternoon, this guy is waiting for me. Today we had another of our epic staring contests. I'm a champion star-er from way back, and yet he beat me again. He's a tough customer, this one. His name is Hamish Steplizard. Hamish has been most ill-tempered since he gave up cigarettes. (Lucky Strikes, he always broke the filter off.) He's no rummy, but he's been known to toss back a tall, cool one of an evening. On Saturdays, he's an old timey, bare-nuckle boxer. Oh, Hamish Steplizard, you rakish cad. I'll stare you down yet.
