Tom the Giraffe
There’s no new post this week, just a giraffe.
His name is Tom and he is 37 years old, which is quite old for a giraffe, probably (I have no idea).
While Tom enjoys the odd cocktail, he does not like getting caught in the rain. Luckily for Tom, this is rarely an issue since he lives in the dessert.. that is, desert (the one with sand, not cakes, much to Tom’s displeasure).
After the recent installation of a television in the clearing down the road, Tom has become concerned about the possibility of a penguin invasion. During our regular conversations over Skype, I’ve assured him that such incursions are only the subjects of fiction. He remains troubled.
Tom dreams that one day he will be the first giraffe in space. I don’t see it happening, personally.
But, you never know.
