Why Scurvy elephant, you ask...

Wayne Dyer tells a story from his childhood about over hearing one of his teachers tell another teacher that he was a "scurvy elephant". When he went home that day he went straight to his mom and told her about it. Concerned, his mother went to see the teacher and asked about this comment. The teacher told her, after stating that Wayne had once again "gotten it wrong", that what she said to the other teacher was that Wayne was a "disturbing element" because he didn't do things the way everyone else did them. I agree with Wayne Dyer in that the world needs a lot more "disturbing elements" and have considered myself a scurvy elephant ever since. It also fit because I have collected elephants all of my life :)
