The ALLIGATOR BANK
I would dare myself to pull myself up and look over the edge at the still water and that’s how I spotted all the money. Why did people go to the zoo and throw money at the alligator? Quarters and dimes shined like fish and tempted it to sink and crawl. Then what do you do with an alligator that’s had its fill of coins? Shake it upside down? Turn its tail? They’re not meant for that. Eventually the zoo put up a mesh wall, but there was a time you could lean over and like a bad penny fall right in.
