Heehee. Thank you. This snippet has been in my mind for some time; a comment in another thread was the perfect trigger. I wrote it during my daughter's gym class this morning, so I apologize if it seems a bit rushed. Wingthing, it tickles me so much that you got that it was the biological lizard; I wasn't sure how well that would come across. (This is actually in response to something she said in the original thread but it belongs here.) And, of course, you realize that before he shut down his "computer," the Skywise brain-lizard sent a memo to all his colleagues re: the solution. lol!
