Blogging 101, Assignment 9 – Engaged Posting
I was reading “Weird Thoughts” on The Creek, a witty blog by a man who lives on a creek with his dogs. His weird thoughts included wondering what would happen if his eyeball popped out while he was rubbing his eye and he put it back in sideways, would he lose his balance? If he put it in backwards would he see the inside of his head? Pure silliness which is right up my alley and got me thinking about my own weird thoughts.
I live in Florida where everyone knows that there is an alligator living in every body of water. Floridians are taught that although alligators can run up to 35 mph on land, they cannot make right-hand (90 degree) turns, so if you are ever being chased by an alligator, simply make a 90 degree turn.
Who in the world is going to remember to make a 90 degree turn when a prehistoric beast is charging up their backside? Does it mean that if you make three 90 degree turns you’ll come up behind the monster and you’ll be safe if you stay in back of him? Can he run in a big circle and come up behind you? Who tested the 90 degree theory?
I’ve always imagined I would get behind a tree figuring by the time he maneuvers around the tree, I would have time to make several 90 degree turns right the hell out of there. Of course this whole conversation is moot since I’d drop dead from fright and my eyeballs would probably pop out.
Can you beat that weird thought?
Q: How many arms has an alligator got?
A: Depends how far he’s gotten with eating his dinner!
Q: Why don’t alligators like fast food?
A: Because they can’t catch it!
Q: What do you get if you cross a alligator with a flower?
A: I don’t know, but I’m not going to smell it!
