Arlo: Butch, how’d you get your scar?

Butch: I don’t know if you’re ready for that story.

Arlo: I can take it.

Nash: Oh, yeah. You got to tell him, Pa!

Ramsey: That’s a good one!


It was 100 degrees in the shade. I walked for five days with no water. Then I saw it. A pretty pond. I bent down to take a drink, when these crocs launched out of the water.

One croc bit me on the face. Ain’t no way I wasn’t its supper except for one thing, I wasn’t ready for dying that day. I bit one croc in half, tail-whipped the other,
and the last one… Well, I drowned that croc
in my own blood.

Arlo: Whoa.

BOTH: Dang!

Nash: Ooh! Look, look, gives me little goosies every time.

Ramsey: I love that story!

Arlo: (GASPS)

Ramsey: Show him your souvenir.

Nash: Ain’t that just too good?

Ramsey: Can I touch it this time?

Butch: No.

Arlo: Huh. You guys would have liked my poppa. He wasn’t scared of anything.

I’m done being scared.

Butch: Who said I’m not scared?

Arlo: But you took on a croc!

Butch: And I was scared doing it. If you ain’t scared of a croc biting you on the face, you ain’t alive. Listen, kid, you can’t get rid of fear. It’s like Mother Nature, you can’t beat her or outrun her, but you can get through it.

If you ain’t scared
you ain’t alive.
You can’t get rid of fear,
but you can get through it.
