This is going to be a very random post today. You have been warned.
Do you ever have weeks, months even, where it seems like your life is full of busy without being full of content? That’s how I’m feeling these days. I know, I know, a REAL writer makes her own content. But lately it feels like my brain has been playing catch up.
::cut to non-sequitur::
I’ve been thinking a lot about my sister these days. The littlest one, The Child, the one getting married. The Child really likes elephants. Not in an “I’m obsessed with elephants and want to have every elephant thing in existence ever,” kind of way, but in an, “I have a loving respect for elephants, and enjoy receiving the occasional well-thought out elephant gift.” Sort of like me with birds.
She has a ridiculous fondness for elephant jokes. Kind of like me with dead baby jokes. (Hey! I told you I was morbid!) So in honor of her and all the thought she’s been taking up (fondly) in my mind lately, I bring you a plethora of elephant things that make me laugh, starting with The Child’s favorite joke, which may be my favorite joke of all time, and ending with one of my favorite things ever: a Looney Tune. You’re welcome.
To be told rapidly in sequence with a completely straight face. Until the end. Then you can be overcome with your own cleverness.
