A Letter To...


Dear Mr. Gecko:

You don't know me, but if you did you would know that I have several irrational fears. The top three are bee stings, decapitation and the slightly more off center fear of non animated talking animals/babies. The first two are fairly easy to understand. The third may need some explanation.

For some reason non animated talking animals and babies (that speak in adult voices) totally freak me out. Animals are not supposed to talk and babies should sound like babies and not Bruce Willis. The Taco Bell dog, the Quiznos baby Bob among others scare the hell out of me. Irrational? Perhaps. Understandable? I am sure you agree.

However, something strange is happening. I recently discovered that in this commercialized -talking- non-animated -animal -baby world there is one non animated animal that seems to put me at ease. And that animal is you the Geico Gecko. In fact. I'm down right fond of ya.

For the life of me I cant understand why I can tolerate you, the Geico Gecko, above all others. Could it be your Greenish hue? Your calm demeanor? Your lovable sense of self worth? Your English accent? I dont know the answer, but I do wonder if this simple act of interest raises particular questions about my own character.

For now, I'll keep admiring you from afar my little green friend.

Keep up the good work.

Love,
Xtine

p.s. I enjoyed reading your blog

Comments:
I love him. If he weren't quite so tiny, I'd date him. But I'm afraid I'd squish him.
 
X loves the Gecko! Too funny.

Lol

PS Jealous, btw.
 
I don't know. The commercial with the groggy, contented, seatbelt-restrained Geico Gecko kind of freaks me out.

But I kind of know what you mean.
 
I find English accents make nearly anything tolerable. Whether it would help me tolerate President Bush remains to be seen, though.
 
Wow, everyone has a blog these days!

I understand the Baby Bob fear. I kind of liked the "Yo Querro Taco Bell" dog though, and I'm not even a dog person. And what ever happened to the Bud-weis-er frogs? I remember they got replaced by lizards with Jersey accents, but I think they disappeared too...I smell foul play. Maybe Mr. Gecko's not so innocent. Or maybe, just maybe, Geoffrey Giraffe, as head of a corporation, is behind it.

The one that REALLY freaks me out is the Burger King though...
 
I am actually a fan of the talking animals, but I don't condone talking babies. The LOOK WHO'S TALKING one is OK, only because the people around him can't hear him, and his lips aren't creepily animated. The Quizno's kid is unacceptable, though, especially because I so easily recognize that it is the voice of comedian Ken Hudson Campbell.
