you will not remember this
One small truth about elephants is that they don't jump. I remembered it because i read it and i pictured it and i believed it. Once on a friend's house, i saw a collection of elephant figurines, their noses and tusks all up in the air, a sign of luck my friend regarded. The same friend called this morning and asked: "What about turtles?". I pictured them, their bodies dragging their heavy armours and their slow calculated glides, and i was very curious. After work, i drove straight to my place, fixed dinner and googled turtles jumping. I chuckled. I was satisfied.
