I just got a spam email saying that I could be entitled to a legacy of seventeen million five hundred thousand dollars. I'm laughing because at this stage of the game I'd be pleased with a legacy of $305.00.
But the silver lining on the disappointment of not being suddenly insanely rich is being gifted with a new character name. Malcolm Foy. Isn't that a moniker just dripping with possibilities? The Foy part brings to mind the circus family and Malcolm? Well, Malcolm would just have to be a chap who wears a sweater with leather elbow patches. So I'm envisioning a scene with Malcolm high in the air in his leotard and sweater, swinging upside down on the trapeze when his lit pipe suddenly tumbles to the straw below, alighting it, and panic ensues.
I just have to figure out a way to craft it so none of the elephants get hurt. I'm a sucker for elephants. Maybe I'll send them all out to have their toenails polished or something right before the fire rages through the big top.
After all, after a hard day of balancing on balls, what elephant doesn't enjoy a walk through the butter in a nice roomy Frigidaire [to soften the cuticles] followed by a good pedicure?
