This afternoon, while I was shopping for $1 vegetable bags at the farmers’ market as I do every Wednesday and Sunday, I spotted this gal nonchalantly sunbathing on some dude’s lap (whom I saw a couple of days cruising around the neighborhood with the cutest kitten on his shoulder, which I hope he still has). At one point I even think Ms Iguana hissed at some old ladies trying to cut in line at the tomato stand (a super typical activity), but although I kept an eye on her I couldn’t see if she ended up getting some tomatoes herself. I have to admit I have no idea what iguanas eat, hopefully not shoulder kittens…

She seemed so focused I forgot to ask her name, but since iguana rhymes with a few names of girls I know (Shawna, Ivana, Juana) in my mind it was a female. But make sure you ask her the next time you see her lounging and shopping around.
