Day 4: A tiger, some alligators and the Kidd

I’m currently on a 5,000 mile road trip through 15 states with Cecily. The following is an excerpt from today’s post on our blog,

We couldn’t very well leave New Orleans without seeing some gators in a swamp, right? Plus, finding new ways to go fast on the water is a favorite hobby of Megan’s. Yes, even though she can’t swim. It’s a conundrum.

We ended up getting an excellent guide for our airboat swamp tour and he showed us a whole mess of alligators. They’ve managed to find an alligator’s equivalent of crack: marshmallows. Apparently once an alligator tries one he is hooked for life and will always come back to you looking for more. Megan imagines the alligator’s thought process to be something like this: Hey, that’s not meat, why are you throw-oh. Oh that’s good. What is that and where can I get s’more?!? Of course that translation might be somewhat off, cause alligators are very hard to read. They’re very stoic.
