We visited the office a few months back and Little Elephant was quite talkative with some of my colleagues. Some of these converations have been brought up over and over again. They are so adorable, I never want to lose them.
Keti: Hello Little Elephant! How are you?
Little Elephant: [silence]
Keti: Why what great sunglasses you have!
Little Elephant: Thank you.
Keti: Where did you get them?
Little Elephant: Wisconsin.
Keti: Oh! In America. Do you think you could get me a pair just like that for my niece?
Little Elephant: [stares at Keti wide-eyed]
Keti: Yes, I would really like one just like that for my niece.
Little Elephant: No! That is silly.
Keti: Why silly? My niece would love to wear sunglasses. If she had a pair like that my niece would wear them all the time. Even inside. Like you. Right now.
Little Elephant: [stares at Keti as if she is growing a second head]
Keti: Please?!?! My niece would really love the sunglasses.
Little Elephant: [with a hint of disdain in her voice]. Keti! Knees don’t wear sunglasses. You have to put them on your eyes!
