For those of you who didn't catch my last post - I am doing a "NoJoMo" and asking for YOU guys to give me topics to write about! Tell me something you want to hear about... it can be a question about anything. Seriously - don't hold back. It can be personal, it can be silly, it can be dirty... it can be a "what would you do?" or "would you rather this or that" kind of question... it can be anything! Leave it in a comment... a question (or two..or three!) about ANYTHING. Even if you're a stranger... feel free to leave it anonymously! I will answer every single question truthfully.
Question from Em: "Why are elephants your favorite animal?"
Simple question with a simple answer. Two words: JUNGLE BOOK.
Growing up, Kelsey and I had an enormous Disney collection. The Jungle Book was never a huge favorite, but we did watch it from time to time. From the first time I saw it, I fell in love with the elephants! I loved how they walked in a straight line, holding onto the tail of the elephant in front of them. I loved their grandeur and magnificence. I loved how FUNNY they were! Most of all, I liked the little baby elephant. From then on - I liked any movie with elephants. Dumbo, The Secret Garden, etc.
Here is my favorite scene from The Jungle Book.
It's funny how liking something as a kid can roll over into adulthood. I still love elephants, and a dream of mine has always been to touch one, and pat its trunk. Anybody know how I can make this happen, aside from visiting the circus? ;-)
