Reptiles as barometer

Last night we went to try out a new fancy bar, and some exuberant and friendly folks sat next to us.

One guy was actively gesturing and got to talking about when he worked in Louisiana. He was at a company meeting, he explained. As boardrooms can sometimes go, things got heated, and employees started to raise their voices and the conversations were about to boil over. A local guy who could no longer take it, slammed his hands down on the table, and said in a thick Cajun accent, A gator got your leg?

What?, they all said.

Does a GATOR GOT YOUR LEG? Then he stood up and left.

He thought they were arguing over things that did not warrant it. If it was as bad as a large reptile eating your limb, well then, yeah, complain.

So this is a good barometer for drama: use it accordingly.

And in the meantime, here is a small bit of utter joy to help with all the rest:
