Response to "If you want a kitten, start out by asking for a horse."

 

When my mom was a kid, a circus came to the town she lived in (in Germany after the war), and of course all the children were fascinated by the parade and all. One of the performers had a small pet monkey, and my mom absolutely loved the idea.

She went to her dad and asked if she could have a pet monkey too. Of course he said no, we can't keep a pet monkey. To what she replied "Then at least a small elephant?" (Wenigstens a' Elefäntle?)
