Random musings before going to bed…

Andy: “Do you know that alligators fall asleep when they are rubbed on their tummies?”

Sarah: “Isn’t it that they pass out when they are turned on their backs? No blood to the brain? It’s kind of sad. People should just leave them alone.”

Andy:  “But they sometimes eat people. So it all evens out.”

Sarah: “That’s not the same thing. It would be equal if they came and held us upside down until we faint.”

Andy: “Still, it’s a good thing to know. You know…in case.”

Sarah: “Yeah. And I guess that if you can grab a hold of their noses and clamp their mouths shut, they can’t bite you. So you want to get their mouths shut first, and then wrestle them onto their backs.”

Andy: “But if you’re in the water, you’re screwed. They just start spinning. So it doesn’t matter if you’ve got their mouths shut first.”

Sarah: “Right. They’ll just drown you first, and then they’ll eat you.”

…(long silence)…

Andy: “Maybe your parents should just visit us from now on.”
