Gator! Gator!!



I pulled into the circle at the entranceway of the Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate to get a picture of the hotel - the sun was shining brightly at the moment, and the hotel looked spectacular. When I walked across the driveway towards the pond that sits at the entranceway I spotted a gorgeous woman (she was a redhead) standing there, dressed to run, but just staring into the pond. I nonchalantly walked a little way up the incline so she wouldn't see me ogling her, and took a quick shot of the hotel. All of a sudden, she spoke!

"Is that a crocodile?" she asked, as she pointed towards the pond.

"Can't be, we only have alligators here," I responded, as I scanned the water with my eyes.

"Oh, of course," she said. "Look." (She pointed to the gator.)

"Wow!" I exclaimed. (It was way out in the middle of the pond, but I took a few photos while we continued our conversation.)

"A few minutes ago it had its back up and tail curled out of the water! I'm from Michigan, we don't see things like this," she said.

"This is so cool! Thanks for pointing this out to me," I said, as I discreetly ogled her. (** 'You are gorgeous, what are you doing for dinner?' I thought.)

"Do you see them often?" she asked.

"Hardly ever, but you never know when one will pop up!" I retorted. "Be careful where you run!"

There was some more banter back and forth, then she thanked me for being so pleasant, told me I was cute, and ran off down the road.

** Ha, ha. I'm acting like George, lol!!

Oh, and the one picture I took of the hotel before she engaged me in conversation wasn't very good!

I successfully kept this post under two minutes!

Did you 'plant' the gator so you talk to and ogle the redhead? I'll bet you did and you were your generally suave self. MB

How absolutely just like a man, lol...about to be eaten by an alligator, he can only be stunned into assuming the lunch position by being enthralled by a redhead...course my husband has been enthralled by his redhead for a long time...and Carletta is right, I hear redheads just adore being called gorgeous, lol!
