Once I was bitten by my roughneck monitor, who happened to have climbed up the outside of my siberian chipmunk's cage and was trying to eat him! She only got the tip of my finger thank goodness, and it was actually rather hilarious: this happened on the night of a first date with a guy I'd just met and he witnessed all this take place -- the funny part was, he was freaking out and running around like a chicken with it's head cut off hollering, "OH MY GOD!!! Are you alright?!?! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!" LMAO
Needless to say, I gave him the boot soon after (what a geek) and also needless to say, I haven't let my monitor roam around in the same room as my chipmunk ever since! (duh)
Even shiny fruit may be rotten at the core.
