One night the boy decides that it is time to get rid of the alligator. I order to get rid of the alligator, the boy goes to the refrigerator and takes out all of the food. He then makes a trail from under his bed, down the stairs, and finally into the garage. After the boy makes his path he hides and waits for the alligator to come enough'. The alligator soon comes out and eats all of the food from the bed to the garage. The little boy then looks the door to the garage behind the alligator, leaves his dad a warning message, and goes to bed worry free.
