An Inconvenient Elephant Judy Reene Singer To all those little creatures that inhabit my office with me and, by virtue of their unremitting cuteness, make it impossible for me to concentrate on my work. My little red French poodles, Lola and Flash Gordon; the twin-zues, two little shih tzus named Mimsie and Sadie; my two African Grays, Zodiac and Tallulah; and my salty- mouth cockatoo, Samantha.

She washed her hands, then passed the bowl to me, and I did the same. Next the guide took out two plates and with great ceremony set the table for our dinner. He put a bowl of dinner sadza, made of cooked ground corn, in the middle of the table, along with a bowl of stewed greens, some cauliflower, and a fresh pot of tea.
