I must admit, I am very grateful for my job. I work at a hip web design studio that overlooks a lake and nature preserve on the west coast of Florida. The facility itself is vibrant and inspiring, but my favorite part is the backyard, which has a lunch patio overhanging the water. Each day can be found a spectacular myriad of fish, birds and reptiles all congregating within 100 feet of our chairs. These are some of my friends. The alligator's name is Chopper. When I started working he was 3 feet, but now he's approaching 6.
