If I was an elephant…

Posted on January 8th, 2013 in Stories


If I was an elephant, I’d learn to hula hoop.  With my trunk.

If I was an elephant, I’d jump rope so high I’d accidentally lasso the moon.


If I was an elephant, I’d crush my own peanuts to make my own peanut butter and jelly.  And eat a bucket every day.

If I was an elephant, I’d ride about town in a hot air balloon– a car or bus simply wouldn’t do.


If I was an elephant, I’d wear a bow on my trunk and go get a pedicure every week.  Because an elephant never has stinky feet.

If I was an elephant, I’d stroll along with a parasol of palm leaves– well, actually, the whole palm tree.



If I was an elephant, I’d paint pictures with my tail and play trumpet with my trunk–an artist and band all in one.


If I were an elephant, I’d stretch my trunk so high I’d pluck stars like diamonds from the sky.

If I was an elephant, I’d go swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and surfing in the Pacific.  My board?  Well, of course it’d be a cruise ship!

If I was an elephant,  I’d make friends with all sorts of tiny little creatures and let them ride on my back.  Except for mice and ants–they are a bit too terrifying for that.


But the best part of being an elephant….

Would tap-dancing and twirling my tail.  Because as an elephant, not only do we dance big– but we dance well.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new story tomorrow!  Be sure to stop by Words N’ Whimsy to hear about my new workshop!

    I hope that if you were an elephant you wouldn’t have a safety tag on your butt.
    The rest of it sounds pretty cool.
