    The amount of times you said flip flops when you should’ve said slides (or even sandals) has inspired me to join the jackals.

    I am so happy you included the release. I had been wondering what happened to the poor gator for a week now.

    Sandals would have also been acceptable – as slides and flip-flops are sandals but flip-flops are definitely not slides…. Hope this helps Seth! 😊 💕

    NGL, I would watch that Animal Planet show. It’d be like if Steve Irwin were a Florida Man.

    Everything in Florida wants to kill you. One of the reasons you have to be crazy to live there.

    That’s an old story, but it still works.. I like the neighbor coming over with a beer AFTER the gator is in the can …

    I must note that the last 2 “stories we need right now” have been about alligators. Do you have something against alligators, Mr. Meyers?

  • Kimberly Druhan 3 months ago

    I’m sure there are many comments already saying this by now. And I don’t know how to actually get to corrections, but those are obviously slides not flip-flops
