I was just remembering a little conversation I had with Sid this past weekend. I thought it was pretty funny. We were walking down the boardwalk in Seaside like we do many times a year. Chris and the boys always stop to get elephant ears and corndogs. Well, they had closed down the corndog shop so they all went for elephant ears. Sidney didn't want anything.
Sid: Actually mom, I'll have a water.
Me: Ok, you sure you don't want to share an elephant ear with the boys?
Sid: ( squishy faced) No.
So then we go sit down. Chris, Joyce, Sid, and I were sitting together. She suddenly looks up at me and says...
Sid: Mom, is that really made from an elephant? I don't want to eat or kill an elephant!
After we all calmed down from laughing, we explained that it was made from bread dough and sugar, NOT ELEPHANTS! Boy was
Sid relieved. She did eventually taste it, but I don't think she could shake the image.
