September 22nd is Elephant Appreciation day. I am focusing on this 'holiday' because my sister, a follower of this blog (supposedly) LOVES elephants.
Relatively speaking this is a new obsession for her. When she was a kid it was owls. I wonder what it is about elephants she is so crazy about.
I don't mean that elephants aren't interesting animals, kinda cute, surprisingly light on their feet when they want to be, and they and freak people out with their trunks. But really, their skin is rough, petting can't be fun. Their ears are big....can you imagine all the ear wax that builds up...and who has to clean that out...(ohh, another elephant with its trunk maybe. Okay, that might be in the pro side of the elephant) AND they (reportedly) NEVER FORGET. That has to be a great memory and I am not sure I want to have everything I do remembered like that.
Hmmm, I wonder if she became a Republican because of their mascot???
