Badass sister

Wow, that’s one badass sister:

BBC News - Brit saves twin sister by punching crocodile in the face


What a humiliating first date that would be. Her: “What’s been your most thrilling, life-affirming moment so far?”

Me: “Yeah, well, I don’t want to brag but I reached a power level of 400 on Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.”

She nods. Seems suitably impressed.

“You?”, I asked.

“I beat the living snot out of a croc three times to save my sister. One of its teeth got lodged in my fist. I made a necklace out of it. See?”


When something is trying to eat you it gets your attention.

Mine was a 10’ alligator trying to eat me, my kayak, or both (I believe croc’s are worse, more persistent, but don’t know). I can still see the very large gaping mouth coming up at me. He missed. I wacked him on the nose with my fishing rod.

We just kept an eye on each other for the next hour or so. Funny the things that come out of your mouth when that happens. Seems I have a potty mouth when startled; that big bolt of adrenaline surges through you.

I made double-sure I never forget my fancy self-inflating PFD - might be harder to drag me under?
