How to Eat an Elephant
Thank you, I believe I am ready to order. I will have the elephant, please.
Oh, wow! That’s the elephant special, huh? It looks great! But, uh, how does one even begin to eat an elephant?!
One bite at a time? Thanks for that advice.
Currently, I am staring wide-eyed at my over flowing plate and paralyzed by this pachyderm. I’m still looking for the utensils and have no idea where to find a napkin.
So, why is it that I’ve ordered the elephant off of the menu...knew it was coming...and yet, now that I am served it, I have no idea how to eat it. I am beginning to second guess my choice. Why didn’t I just order the meatloaf?! I know how to eat meatloaf!
Well, here I sit. Looking. Contemplating that first bite. Do I start with the head? Or maybe the tail? How about the foot? It’s got a really tough exterior... You know what, maybe I will just sit and stare at it some more...
And some more....
And some more...
What do you know?!
It didn’t shrink at all.
I bet something will come to me while I season it.
Could I have some salt and pepper please? Oh, it’s under the elephant you say...with the utensils and the napkin.
Alright, so, if Melinda Mae can eat a whale...
I can eat an elephant!Comments
