A couple of weeks ago, Clementine brought me my coffee cup at the door as I was leaving for the cafe to write, as is the routine every morning. I was walking that day, and a block or two from home, I noticed my cup was rattling. Taking off the lid to peer inside, I saw that I had a hitchhiker :-)
This morning, I actually reached the cafe and went up to the counter before I noticed a little companion had made its way into my cup.
He has clothes on this time, which is kind of a relief. Less to explain, you know? I mean, it's one thing to take an elephant with you to the cafe. Quite another to take a naked elephant. What will people say?
Thank you, sweet Clementine.
