Irving Meets Another Elephant

(continued from here)

You can imagine how thrilled Irving was when he came upon an animal not just his own size, but also of his own kind!

She was Indian. And she was beautiful!


Said Irving, “Hi, how are ya? You wanna be friends?”

Said the beautiful elephant, Would you care for a spot of tea?”

Ooh, she was fancy too.


Irving replied, No thanks. Not right now. What’s your name?”

The beautiful, fancy elephant merely repeated, Would you care for a spot of tea?”

Was she not hearing him?


Irving, speaking louder, tried again. Um, no. Thanks. So, you from around here?”

The beautiful, fancy, repetitive elephant said Would you care for a spot of tea?”



He’d had high hopes.

But the beautiful, fancy elephant seemed to have nothing but tea on the brain.

An unhappy Irving turned and started in on his quest again.

  1. K,

    You need to write children's books have too much time on your hands! :)


  2. You should turn THIS into a children's book ;)

  3. As much as I love the story...the reflection of them on the table is enough to send me over the edge! I can't wait for the next one:-)

  4. Thanks. Ken told me the same thing last night, about children's books. Would be fun!

    Monica, thanks for pointing that out. I was having SO much fun with my sis-in-law's dSLR over Christmas, but I hadn't noticed the reflections! Um, no, i mean, that was TOTALLY intentional, yeah...

  5. Karin, what's it like to be so amazing?!

  6. I don't know why YOU're asking. You should know that! : )
