The Young Master is Home

Ben is back from Florida. I was amazed how much I missed him.

"What's the craziest thing you've ever done?" was last night's leading questions.

"I don't know," I said. "Parachuting maybe. How about you?"

"Swimming with an alligator."

"You swam with an alligator!"

"Oh no sorry, not an alligator, a manatee."
Manatees are slow-moving, non-aggressive, and generally curious creatures .......
Has any other reader noticed the remarkable resemblance between the alligator, notorious for its bone crushing bite, and the manatee, notorious for its witless collisions with propellers? I wonder if they are - by any chance - related?
