Why Don’t You Give Me Three Steps

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Not many would call me a man of danger. They would call me a man of pancakes, a man of poop rolling, or a man of bad breath. But a man of danger?

As we went walking on the trails in Louisiana yesterday, it became very obvious that we had company.

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
‘Cause he was lean, mean
Big and bad, Lord

Now, I know that I don’t live here, and this is in fact their house. We are just guests. But a man of danger, I am not. I am a man of respect in this case. And even Sheriff Brickle knows that these guys would probably resist arrest.

I am also a man that knows you gotta give me a running start if in fact I am going to outrun a gator. I am not a fast man. Ok. I am not a man. It took me a long time to get to that. And it would take me a long time to get outta there.

Oh, won’t you
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?

You see, alligators are fast I hear. We lived in that Florida place most of our life, so we know a thing or five about alligators.

If I was a man, it would not be of danger, but a man of appreciation. You see, as much as we don’t want to get hurt by an alligator or worse, persons have to understand, like animals, that we all have our place. To not live or appreciate things in nature because we are scared that they may possibly be out there is enough to cause Sheriff Brickle to arrest you. Twice.

Don’t want no trouble with you
And I know you don’t owe me
But I wish you’d let me
Ask one favor from you

Why are people so afraid? Well, I think it is because they don’t realize the dangerous things that they do everyday like drive in their cars or fly in airplanes.  We all get used to certain things, but it doesn’t make them any less dangerous.

I am not a man of danger, but if I was, I would tell you to live life fully and to do things that may be beyond your comfort zone.  Go places that are waiting for you to visit them and to learn about them.  Yes, even like the swamps of Louisiana.

And if something makes you afraid, like the alligators? Maybe that isn’t such a bad thing either.  Feeling emotions, feeling life makes us think about other parts of our life.  For Girl Person, being respectful and careful of the alligators on our hikes makes her aware.  She is more cautious of us getting in bushes, or too close to the water.  It makes her more cautious with us in other places, because sometimes, you go too fast, not being observant.  For the persons, they have been worried about the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV and how we are even going to get out of here.  Which is making us appreciate the alligators too.  We may be staying at their house for awhile.

Ça c’est bon (Sa say boh(n)): That’s good.  There is your cajun lesson today, y’all.

So what am I trying to tell you today in a round about, swampy way? If there is something you have been wanting to do, try it even if it makes you scared.  You can always turn around.  I’ll give you three steps towards the door.  But just do it.

So there you have it.  Coming from a man of pancakes, not danger.  Don’t let life bite you. Bite back.

    You all be careful out there, misters and ma’am. Swamps have always scared me, and I don’t like you all being that close. But I appreciate your bravery as well. Love you. xoxoxox ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    Hello dear Deputy, Sheriff, GP and BP❤️🐾🐾❤️
    The code that you have given for the dental spray doesn’t work. You may contact the company and let them know that they have a glitch in their system. It calls for 2TD20 but transposes it to 2td20.
    Thank you so much for your loving presence in my daily life😁🐾🐾
    Hugs and Love,
    Cindi B
