*We always hear the tragic stuff when an alligator is in the picture. But sometimes these crocodilians (I learned that word from Wikipedia) just want to hang. You know, take a leisurely walk around your yard to see what’s up on the other side.
Secretly, they may wish we would just stop fearing them, and allow them to just lay beside us on the ground as we enjoy our outdoor picnics. Hey, they may even want us to play a friendly game of ball. You know, you use your feet to roll it over to the croc, and then watch him skidaddle over and catch it in that huge mouth.
OK, I know it’s a stretch, but you’ve got to admit, I was on some kind of a roll!
Anyhoo, fun times appear to be what’s happening for the world-weary gator in the video below, shared by the Miami Herald.
I’ve decided to name him Socrates, after the Greek philosopher. Why?
I dunno. Just felt like it.
Here’s the video.
