How do you get down from an elephant?
People who have never been on an elephant have been known to answer that question like this: “You don’t get down from an elephant. You get down from a duck.”
People who have actually ridden an elephant know that you get down from an elephant with the assistance of the kind (and very handsome) circus guy.
Those who have ridden an elephant also know that even with the assistance of the circus guy, there is really no graceful way to dismount an elephant.I went to the circus tonight. It was amazing.
