Gator, yeah, well that's easy. I was tagged with this ridiculous nom de guerre by my ignorant friends (all two of them) up north who still insist that Florida is nothing but a fetid, primordial swamp bustling with savage crocodilians. Well, if they think the reptile population is in overabundance here then maybe they should pay a visit to Louisiana!
So why do I use it? I guess I've gotten used to it over the years and besides, it's easy to spell!
