What Grown-ups Forget


Sad, isn’t it?



They’ve forgotten.

Yes. Very sad. Because they’re not elephants.


Elephants never forget. They even teach their babies how to play in the mud. Elephant babies are lucky.


My parents always tell me to stop playing in sludge. I tell them that mud is not sludge. I tell them it’s magic fudge.

I like that, magic fudge. How could grown-ups forget how good it feels when it squishes between your toes and oozes between your fingers?

It’s like The Little Prince said – “All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.

Yes. And “only children know what they are looking for.”

Will we be like them when we grow up?

Who’s growing up?
