Why I Don't Live Near Alligators

In the past, I've mentioned that I like living in a city like NYC because it means I don't have to deal with things like quicksand and crocodile-eating pythons. Well, add this to the list of reasons I'll never live in Florida with the alligators.

Does that mean that the alligators living under your feet there in the Big Apple really are just a myth?

I suppose, Rebecca, that you also want us to believe that people don't regularly get run over outside the Empire State Building when just about to meet their true loves on the observation deck.

Oh no, people DO regularly get run over outside the Empire State Building and everywhere else in New York. It's amazing! In the 3 years I've lived here, I've seen five people get hit by cars (the most recent was yesterday) ... you're right, it's more likely that a car will jump onto the sidewalk and kill you in NYC than it is an alligator will eat you in Florida. But still! Aligators eating people while they're jogging?! That's too much.
