maintain a distance of at least one alligator between each other.
Officials all over the country can’t stop emphasizing the importance of practicing social distancing to slow down the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now leaders in Leon County, Florida, are giving people an interesting visual to help them maintain the proper distance from others.
“This is a reminder that during COVID 19, please remember to keep at least 1 large alligator between you and everyone else at all times,” Leon County said on Facebook.
To slow the spread, officials are enforcing stay-at-home orders and urging citizens to practice social distancing, by standing 6 feet apart.
“i’m also fascinated by the difference between terror and fear.
fear says, “do not actually put your hand in the alligator,”
while terror says, “avoid florida entirely because alligators exist.”

it’s national toasted marshmallow day
and all i can think of
is my very favorite dessert –
introduced in the united states years ago
by the scouts of america
is still much loved by so many.
actual marshmallow health and safety tips from the boy scouts of america guidebook:
When roasting your marshmallows, a light brown skin is sufficient. Having the marshmallow engulfed in flames may cause panic and flinging of hot marshmallow onto someone.
Have a properly stocked first-aid kit available (and have trained first-aid Scouts and adults on hand).
Roasting marshmallows can be fun, but care should be taken so that participants do not become injured by burns or punctures.
If you are on a campout, thoroughly clean your hands and face before hitting the sleeping bag. The smell of marshmallows and chocolate are known to attract various animals.
S’mores are great for an evening snack or cracker barrel, just before bedtime. On campouts, the sugar rush is just enough so that the youth will sleep soundly through the night.
“my favorite vegetable is the marshmallow.”
