There are Indian elephants and African elephants, but I am neither.
It all comes down to the ears and mine are, well, unique.
Rather beautiful in fact.
How did I get them?
That I’m not sure of as they were curled up on themselves for ages, then suddenly there they were, bright and cheerful in the midday sun as they extended themselves to dry.
It was like being reborn, changing from one life form to another, but there is a penalty.
Butterflies don’t live very long, so it is uncertain if I shall have days, months or years on this earth. However, like Dumbo, I believe I can fly.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    OK the kid’s verse came to mind.
    Birdie, birdie, in the sky
    Why’d you do that in my eye?
    I’m sure glad elephants don’t fly.

    Nice job Di.

  7. Sounds like this one had little chrysalis’s on it’s head before even realizing they would change into this! Great story.. Thanks for participating!
