You Think He Should Do What?

My grandmother likes to watch Who Wants to be a Millionaire and sometimes I end up watching it with her. A couple days ago, the question of the day was something along the lines of “what word for extra-large has been added to the dictionary after it was made famous by a circus elephant?” A. Enormous B. Mammoth C. Gigantic D. Jumbo (By the way, I just really butchered that, but you get the idea).

Of course, the answer was Jumbo. I knew that.

After they gave the answer my grandmother turned to me and said, “That’s something I’ve always thought your father should do.”

I tilted my head to the side and looked at her in astonishment, asking the first question my mind associated with the subject, ‘ride an elephant?’

No. Apparently she thinks he should be on the T.V. program Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

What a relief. Riding an elephant would have been coming from way out in left field. The whole T.V. thing I can wrap my mind around. I'm still really not sure why my mind jumped to the my first question. I'm still puzzling over it.

Riding an elephant does sound interesting. Maybe I should try it sometime. It's a thought.
