i survived, though not by fleeing, i cut myself off from "the great voice" the telepathic hive mind of our people (since that was how the plague was spreading) it was no easy task, despite my attempted to save M'yri'ah and k'hym, i failed, though i was only incapacitated for weeks, when i awoke i was the only one left (or so i thought)
(Pachyderm is the scientific word for mammals like an elephant that have a thick skin and such. By the way, what should you say when you're comforting a grammar nazi? There, Their, They're… XD) *gives you a "wat?" look and then giggles* You're so weird, Anchovy! *as I'm about to hit the water, I stop mid-air and slowly lower into the pond, without so much as a splash. I paddle around a little bit and look up at you* See? Fun AND refreshing! *giggles*
(A lifetime of hearing and telling jokes with a memory of an elephant. Speaking of which, what do you call something NOT having to do with pachyderms? It's irr-ELEPHANT! XD) *I look at you a bit perplexed* Die? Are you kidding me!? *I smile brightly* I told you…this is the FUNNEREST part of flying!! *I continue to drop. You see that I'm clearly heading for the large pond below*
(Happy New Year! Did you know that a New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other? XD) *smiles brightly* I agree, flying IS awesome! *giggles* But landing is SO much more fun! *brandishes a needle from out of nowhere* See you on the ground! *pops the balloon holding me afloat and plummets* WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
