"L" word/LuLu, Lizard


"LuLu the Lizard"

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a lizard named LuLu. LuLu was red and green and actually wore a hat on her little lizard head. Altho she was not required to she only wore it out when the sun was high in the sky. It was better than wearing sunglasses because she could never find them small enough fit her little lizard head.
One day as she was lolling in the sand of the very hot desert, with her lil hat on...a slithering snake came by and bid her adieu. She didn't see very well since her little hat not only shaded the sun but also shaded her vision. She looked up to the sound of a hissing hello. As she did so, the snake grabbed her, hat and all, by her little neck....and swallowed, little hat and all. ;-(
The end.

Is this an affront to hat wearers? Am I to take a lesson here? I am confused. Poor Lulu. Damned snakes, always catching the unsuspecting off guard!

Now That is a great story. Not sure how the eating the main character would go over as a children's book, but I say you should try it!

Oh, that's so sad. I kept hoping 'til the end that Lulu and the snake would make friends or something.

I guess in the sequel, the snake chokes to death on Lulu's hat?

And there is your Aesop's Fables-type moral. Never eat a hat-wearing lizard.
