Girls Who Cry Alligator

While backpacking across my friend's hometown in Florida, we were enjoying ourselves with some funny thoughts of alligators. We kept thinking of how funny it would be to see alligators.

We messed with each other screaming "alligator!" randomly and laughing. But while eating, my friend yelled alligator and I started laughing.

Next thing I knew an alligator was about 10 feet away from me. I ran but I guess I shouldn't have cause all he wanted was my granola bar that I dropped.
