Fleas and dogs is on the road in India

2 Jan

Me (from the back seat): Oh my god! We just passed an elephant in a truck! There was an elephant in that truck!

My mum: Really? In a truck?

Dad (points to another truck with an elephant painted on): Did it look like that?

Me: No, it was a real elephant!

Dad: Was it big?

Me: It was an elephant!

Mum: How could it get up there?

Me: er….dunno

We lapse into companionable road trip silence.

Mum turns to dad (conversationally): Did you put the bag of rum in the boot or is it in the back seat?

    Hahaha I love your dad’s question – “was it big?”

      Strangely enough I get the same question from people when I mention having seen whales near Barceloneta beach. Just how big does a whale have to be before it’s impressive?
