Trees and Swamps

That’s Jeffervescent! – by Jefferson Airplane

This is a brand new toy. It is a reptile, but do you know which one it is? Is it a crocodile or an alligator?

The difference is very important because the common wisdom is that you should never smile at a crocodile. And this is a problem for me because I smile at everybody and everything. Fortunately, this is apparently an alligator, not a crocodile, so I’ve dodged that social dilemma.

Alligators are like woods and trees. Because apparently, when you are up to your neck in alligators, it is easy to forget that you are there to drain the swamp. In other words, you can’t see the wood for the trees.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind being up to my neck in alligators. Imagine it! My wading pool filled with squeaky alligator toys! That would be amazing.

Maybe seeing the trees is actually a good thing. Maybe it is about living in the moment, that thing that everyone says dogs are so good at. So I will happily sit up to my neck in alligators. Someone else can take care of the swamp.

Having an alligator moment? That’s Jeffervescent!
