E is for Elephants

Elephants being elegant
Eli's editing career ended early. Ego exhausted him. Empty-headed authors earned enough accolades for their ersatz elegance. He'd had enough. But no epiphanies came to envelop him in a new direction. Empty eating only energized his angst. Evening echoed with exasperation. And then Emma entered. Emma's exuded empathy and empathy enhances everyone's aura. Emma encouraged Eli to examine every option. Engineering was out as Eli's education excluded arithmatic. Electrician training ensued, but then electrocuted him, ending those aspirations. Environmental work was promising but economic considerations exed the option. He wanted excitement! Enchantment! Emma encouraged his imagination.
Ergo, entertaining with elephants.

[A drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words]

For a joyous elephant dance, watch this...

And because I'm me and a bit twisted...

Electrician probably didn't fit him.

The joy of dancing is universal and not species dependent. Thanks.

Today, in an ennui inspired slump I watched designer mag video. In it a very fancy woman called her very fancy design for someone's living room "as quite eclesiastic". I'm fairly certain she meant eclectic as there wasn't a cross in sight. I've been saving that for you my lovely adorer of eclectic eclesiastic e words.

I admire anyone who can write drabbles. I've had to do them in various classes but unless I'm in the right mood to do them, forget it! lol! Very nice.
