help!

I was busily taking emptied frame boxes out to the side patio when a baby lizard ran into the laundry room. I freaked and clapped at him, thinking , oh i don't know, he'd translate my frantic clapping to, "please don't' go in my house, you terrify me too, please just keep outside, please, please, please?" He's hiding behind the sink now, and i don't know how to cajole lizards out of hiding places because I've only ever seen them in cages, never as common urban wildlife. What should i do?

Keep him as a pet? Are they annoying? What do they do?

Close the doors to the kitchen and the garage, and leave the outside door open. Either he will leave once you are gone or all of his friends and relations will come and someone will bring a keg. I think the former is more likely, but if not I will help tomorrow.

That is so funny, I tried to leave a comment from work... which said almost XACTLY what my wife said. I also suggested towling the bottom of the inside door (just like college!) to keep him from skittering into the kitchen... and if you want more assertive action, leave a little bit of peanut butter on a plate outside the door. Lizards like protein.
