I could not think of a great I word today. But I do have some interesting tidbits from Sunday.
The girls and I were driving out to Lo’s school for scrimmage softball games. A few miles from our house we see this flashing sign on the side of the road:
Caution Caution Caution
Watch for Loose Cattle.
The girls and laughed it up. Of course, you know with my wacky brain…I was picturing LOOSE cattle; Cows with push-up bras, high heels and deep red lipstick. .
And I totally thought of YOU (Caution) as well.
Then, midway through the third game of the day, Coach casually shouts in the direction of the spectators:
“Is there a Dad here brave enough to go catch that baby alligator in right field?”
A moment passed amid gasps and still no one volunteered. Coach ran out there and shooed the ‘baby’ alligator out of the fence line.
I would not classify him as a ‘baby’…more like a teenager. He was about 3-4 feet long.
Needless to say, the rest of the game the outfielders were more concerned about what might be behind them than the balls coming at them.
Hopefully, the lil’ guy went back to the lake and told the tale of his day!
Coach told us later on regarding the lil’ gator: I think he was scared! How does one know if a gator is scared??
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Minus reptiles and running bovine!!!
Happy Monday to everyone.
