Roommates, Part 2

A lizard lives on our windowsill. He will not move.

I’m painting the house, and circled him with the roller, far at the edge of the wall at first, then gradually closer, until the circle was so small I had to tap him with my thumb.

He scurried a few inches away and hung, watching as I completed the wall, then returned to his perch.

He’s still there.
