Conversation at Our House…Elephants

The Brother has always loved animals. Especially elephants. Even now, as a teenager, he still loves elephants. He is self taught in all of his knowledge and can spout details on a whim. He’s really fun to take to the zoo.——————————-J: “I wish I could be an elephant.”M: “Where would you live?”J: “Down here, in the living room.”M: “Wouldn’t you want to live in Africa?”J (indignantly): “Mom! I wouldn’t have a herd in Africa, I’d be by myself. I’d get eaten by a lion.”M: “Well, you can stay here then and we can be your herd.”J (indignantly): “Mom! People don’t live in herds, they live in groups. Other animals live in herds. Humans live in groups, you know, like baboons.”©Holly B. of 2 Kids and Tired Books 2007-2014 All rights reserved.
