Our family friend Paula who was about a year older than me would sometimes give me her used clothes in the mid 80's. One time when I was opening a bag of them in my bedroom I freaked out when I saw a creepy thing crawling out of the bag. I did not know what it was or how it had even gotten in there. It turns out that one of her brother's geckos had escaped and crawled into the bag. We returned it to him that night. Sometimes when I see the gecko in the Geico ads I think about this and laugh a little. It definitely wasn't funny back then.
