E is for Elepahnt
So this probably sounds crazy, but I have a little dream that some day I'll own an elephant. And not just any elephant, mind you, a mini elephant (which only seems preposterous because no such thing exists). As a girl I always dreamed of having a unicorn, so it only makes sense that as an adult I'd continue my desire to own a completely fictional creature.
I can already see it now. Mr. Snuffles (as he'll probably be named) will be curled up at my feet, snoring sweetly through his tiny trunk. I'll use him for an ottoman, propping my feet on his thick skin, which will look like a tiny desert of cracked sand, a miniature landscape of gray. When he's happy, he'll trumpet in his sleep. The high pitched bugle will send the dogs running for cover in some other corner of the house. And on sunny days we'll walk to the market for peanuts and apples, stopping to sit on the curb in the shade, just me and Mr. Snuffles.
Do you have a dream pet? Or am I just bonkers?
