Today is the Monday of the Monday of the year.

Today I told my ESL students all I know about Florida. I told them the story that Stan Apps told us about the guy he knows in Tampa that swims in the rivers with the alligators in them. I didn't get all of the details correct, I'm sure, but I was glad Stan had told that story--it has now entered my ESL anecdote repertoire. Then I told my students about swimming in the OK Tedi and OK Minga rivers where they converge, and how there are alligators in those rivers, too. Then I thought that they couldn't be alligators, but crocodiles. Then I had to go look it up on the break: crocodiles.
