Elephant Handling #100daysofwriting

Today has been a good day (the best I've had in a while) and I feel like I've got a lot done. It got away from me a little though and not only did I not get the non writing blog update I wanted to do done I didn't have the time to do justice to the writing prompt a friend gave me.

This is quite possibly the silliest piece I've done for this challenge. It was inspired by a tv advert - the one where the guy is riding an elephant and the VoiceOver says "it takes years to master driving one of these.". I think it might be for HSBC? It was on in the background when I was starting my writing.

It takes years to master elephant handling,

That was the very first line in the handbook he'd just received and pulled eagerly from its Amazon box. A dire warning but Dan refused to be put off by that. This was something he'd always wanted to do and whilst he knew it wasn't going to be a walk in the park he didn't think it was going to be as hard as they appeared to be implying it was. He'd master it and wouldn't be put off. No siree not when he'd been preparing for this moment for his entire life. No one had ever been more prepared to start this training course than he was.

But he did wonder what elephant handling had to with being a bin man in the centre of London.
