Luck o’ the Poop

Within a couple of hours, I was struck three times. Actually, sideswiped was more like it. But with a flurry of drops still leaving their mark.

What I’m referring to is the almighty Pee ‘n Poop; the stuff that Balinese geckos – cecak and the larger tokek – love to shower down on unsuspecting human beings, as they stealthily wriggle and sniggle above us on ceilings.IMG_0317

I’ve never been struck by these creatures’ little streams and micro mud-piles before.

There’s always a first. And maybe a second, etc.

But here’s the thing: I was targeted (intentionally or not) THREE times.

They say that being rained on by gecko poop is a sign of luck. An auspicious sign.

My guess is that I’ve just been thrice blessed by the gods.

How lucky can one get?!

Terima kasih and good night to you all ๐Ÿ˜‰



  1. Maybe this solves my mystery. I was sleeping soundly. Suddenly I was awake and was certain that someone had splashed water on my left cheek. I was so tired, and a little scared, so I didn’t reach up and feel it, didn’t wipe it off, just pretended it didn’t happen and feel immediately back to sleep. Could that have been a gecko?

  2. Ya’ll can keep the lizard dropping over there. I like lizzards but I would not care to be showered with gecko droppings. Gives me the willies. And I don’t consider myself as a wimp but then maybe I am. You are bave souls to live there. ๐Ÿ™‚
