Sky Elephants

Some clouds are just hanging out when suddenly a sky elephant appears!

Did you know the clouds are real? Did you know they can speak? Actually, their biggest quest is to find food to satisfy them and their interminable growth. But that is most definitely a tale for another day. I'll hand you over to the clouds themselves now.

"So, one day, we were floating around the Scottish Hebrides, it was a glorious day, and we saw this big shape in the distance."

"Floating it was, really fast."

"Yeah yeah, I'm telling the story. So, anyway, this thing got closer and closer, and eventually..."

"It was an elephant!"

"I was just getting to that part, stop interrupting you idiot!"

"Sorry boss."

"So, this elephant got really close, and you know what he said?"

"Go on, what did he say?"

"He said, "So, how's it goin' brothers?"".

"Yeah yeah, I remember."

"And then, I said, what you doing round this way then mister?"

"And what did he say?"

"He says. "I've got a bit lost. I'm lookin' for the Hebrides, but I must be in the wrong place, this weather is so good!""

"Wait a minute, he really said that?"

"He did! It's true! We said, you are at the Hebrides mate, it's the summer."

"Yeah, yeah, then he starts going on about how in New Zealand, the sky is always hot but he thought that in Scotland it's always snowing, or raining, some cloud stuff anyway."

"Yeah, so we showed him, that us clouds ain't all about rain and snow, we like a bit of sun from time to time, ain't that right boss?"

"Exactly."

I tell you what, those clouds will go on for ages if you let them, I'll take over.

So, the elephant was very happy that he had got to his destination. but he was a little affronted by the clouds. They were just shocked to see a sky elephant, but he explained that he was real. Some time later, he floated off, he had some kind of a mission. I'm going to try to catch up with him, see if he'll tell me more about it. I could do with a bit of excitement.

I'll let you know how I get on.

The End
