Through it all, Astera maintains her core beliefs: 1) She is destined to be fabulous 2) Everything is more fun with a cocktail.

Totally Nekkid

Mr. Pink and I were having lunch at home, and he's a news junkie, so he was watching CNN. And it's a good thing he was, otherwise I would not be able to bring you this breaking news story.

Sheriff's deputies in Florida saved a 6-foot-2-inch man from the jaws of an alligator. "What do we know?" said the sheriff's spokesman. "We know that he was totally nekkid." (Yes, pronounced it "nekkid"). "He admitted that he had been smoking crack cocaine. But it doesn't matter. It's a human life, and our deputies are there to protect and save lives."

For some reason, this speech struck as as inordinately funny. For me, it may be because I have a bad cold and am dizzy and somewhat delirious. But I decided to share. Perhaps you will find it humorous, too.

PS--I'm glad the alligator didn't win. It's just that the way the guy on TV talked about it made it sound funny, not like a scary tragedy.
