After school on Thursday:
Me: Jack, what did you do at school today?
Jack: Well, I found an alligator in the drain on the playground. He was hungry so I told him to wait and I would go get him some mud to eat. And I did! He loooooooved it!
(After much more discussion, I finally concluded that the alligator was actually a lizard. He is sticking to the rest of the story though!)
