Ah the Aligator Dream.
I am suddenly in a battle with an Aligator. I have my staff of power, aka walking stick, and am fending him off. I stab my staff down his mouth, so he cannot bite me. He wriggles, I fear he will get free and ask the staff to produce rat poison. Should have asked for healing qualities here, purification water is better. It makes him convolse and break free.
I turn into a bird to fly away, only my staff is too big to carry. (Wow am I foolish in this dream)
Aligator's mean many things in dreams... I suggest thumbing through a dream interpretation book at the store for their meaning..
