Um, there's a gator in our backyard.

In NYC, we have rats. And cockroaches. And bed bugs. Which, believe me, can be terrifying. But in Florida, they've got us New Yorkers beat. Because there is an alligator a mere twenty feet from the lawn chair where I am laying at this very minute.
No big deal. Just an alligator. Like the ones I look at at the Bronx Zoo.
I can almost hear him saying, Daina, I see you, and you better frickin' watch it. 

Luckily, there are beautiful things like this to balance the scary scaliness of the gator out.
Alright, that's all for now. Back to my book, guacamole, and the hot Florida sun. Happy weekend everyone!


  1. Holy crap!!! What did you do??

  2. Ha, I know! We just let him be. The first year we came here together Brian's parents had a six-foot alligator with 15 babies! Pretty crazy!
