When I first went online to meet a ‘marriage material’ kinda guy I only had to two requirements – he had to be big and he had to be from a warm climate. (I don’t like feeling like I have to protect you in a dark alley & I hate being cold.)
Anyway. I got my wish and here I am in Florida listening to Flo Rida.
But, be careful what you wish for ladies because it’s all great on paper… Then, you get to visit Florida a few times a year and get eaten by alligator and God laughs. He’s funny like that.
It’s been super rainy here and parts of the sidewalk I run have flooded. There is one particularly swampy section that weirds me out because I’ve convinced myself there are alligators hanging out waiting for an unsuspecting runner (me) to pass and there’s breakfast.
When I voiced my concerns Ben’s brother Jon said, “If an alligator is chasing you run in a zig zag pattern. They’ll try to follow you and can’t change direction that fast.”
It rained all last night and the path was super flooded. Obviously, I was worried the alligators were even closer to the path at this point (and now pissed because it’s been raining so much, but maybe that’s just me projecting my feelings on them).
So, I knew what I had to do…
I ran like a crazy in a zig-zag pattern for about a quarter mile just in case they were even thinking about enjoying some Mexican for breakfast.
And that’s why no one wants to run with me.
Wildlife sighting today – a Wood Stork!
Question: What are your TWO requirements for a significant other?
Choose wisely or you might be eaten by a wild animal…
