But I know you would rather have a whisky-and-soda."

Stripping off the fibre, they crush the shell with their tusks, and let the juice trickle down their throats. The position of the trunk is very graceful when they feed themselves; as it is also when they hold a branch and fan off the flies from their backs.

Bugs and bees and birds may like such places, but being a mere human being I prefer indoors." "Then we will go in. I came out here so as to be not at home if any one came up to see me." "Hiding, are you? If you don't want to see people, why see them?" She waved her turkey-wing fan inquiringly.
