Later that evening I asked Andreas to move the plank. But to be fair I did tell him about the lizard.
On a side note the same day I thought I had lost Hugo. I was looking all over in the house for him, and was starting to think I had left a door open so he could have gone outside -highly unlikely because he's a scaredy-cat and hates going outside, but the brain does weird things when stressed. My heart had started to race a bit. But then I found the little gremlin in the closet. Sigh.
