From Dr. Laura's show today:
"If you know it's an alligator, you don't get into the tub with it! If you do and get bit, you blame yourself, not the alligator."
Let's face it. We all have alligators in our lives, and sometimes we let ourselves pretend they're... salamanders. And then we're surprised when they snap at us. But really, we knew better, didn't we?
