I wanna be a stick sharpener; maybe we can collaborate.

I'll draw up the contract! Got a pencil?

The wise Aerophant should have no difficultly securing employments such as this, which require merely insight, that which Aerophants exude effortlessly, as an endless dandelion to the winds of human understanding!

Yeah, it is times such as this, when ruminating upon the infinite wisdoms from said packyderm, that I suspect "Aerophant" in title to be a westernization of the sanskrit pali dialect's "Arahant" - meaning "worthy one," having achieved full awakening!, and having destroyed greed, hatred and delusion, ending the cycle of rebirth! This linguistic homology seems too truth-yielding for coincidence, and as such has formed the basis of several conference papers than I am now laboring to prepare for this year's "Aerophant Studies Symposium" to be held in Newark, NJ. All reading are invited to attend.

When I get worn out by the demands of consulting, I dream about a job in data entry. Someone hands you a piece of paper, you type it. It is black and white, right or wrong. No email hermeneutics, no office politics, no creativity, no ideas required. You just type.

Heidi, doesn't everything come down to data entry, in the long run? Maybe we need to dig ditches.

Pete, actually, the root of "aerophant" is an Alagaƫsiac word that roughly translates as "inflated one." I'd love a free tote bag from the Symposium. I'm booking a ticket to Newark!
