Those silly things...


Esau loved his toy elephant. His mother had fashioned it for him from a split coconut, a length of hose, and various other bits and bobs from around the house. It went with him everywhere, to pre-school, to the park, even to his therapist, who thought it was a dapper elephant, and told Esau this often when they discussed his day, and his feelings, and his alien abduction. This is why Esau was alarmed, and startled, and mad when, on a class trip to the zoo, his toy elephant escaped into the elephant pen to live with his own kind.
