One of Many Elephants

To be honest, I don't have a clue when my obsession began. Which means, I'm not quite sure which elephant was my first. But what I am (almost completely) sure of is which is my favorite.

I got little 'Corduroy' here last Christmas. It was love at first sight, a few weeks before, at a 'Pier One Imports' store when I snatched it up, hugged it, and begged my mom for possession. (Normally I don't ask for things on the spot two week before Christmas...) But believe me, you would too if you felt its velvety-soft fur and adorable little corduroy patches.

When I tore open the gift wrap that Christmas morning, there was no doubt a scream involved. Why wouldn't there be? Especially if its an elephant? And even more, the elephant that caused me to beg on my hands and knees just for its possession?


I guess you could say I'm a little obsessed with those wrinkly, little (no--giant) animals. But what can I say? They're just so... adorable!


  1. I love elephants! They're so stinking adorable. Did you know that elephants can't jump? If they managed to get all four feet off the ground at once, when they hit the ground again all their bones would break from the impact. Crazy.

  2. Haha elephants are very cute! That one stuffed elephant is *super* cute! :D

  3. pal, i love that elephant too! i hope you get many more of your beloved wrinkly creatures for Christmas.

  4. Yay, I love that elephant too! (Even though I had to drag you crying and begging out of that store the first time you saw it.)

    And now I can't stop thinking about Katie's comment. Really?? That's so intriguing!
