elephants


chie: wouldn't it be great if an elephant stood on all of our paper balls and squashed them flat

anna: ermmm....yes....

chie: but I suppose that would be cruel on the elephant...  and how would we even get it into FarGo...




(after this conversation we discovered images of elephants all over coventry, it forms part of the coventry crest and represents strength)

sent to coventry

"By 1811, the meaning of the term 'sent to Coventry' was defined in Grose's The Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue:
To send one to Coventry; a punishment inflicted by officers of the army on such of their brethren as are testy, or have been guilty of improper behaviour, not worthy the cognizance of a court martial. The person sent to Coventry is considered as absent; no one must speak to or answer any question he asks, except relative to duty, under penalty of being also sent to the same place. On a proper submission, the penitent is recalled, and welcomed by the mess, as just returned from a journey to Coventry."

the quality of being nothing - an exploration on the point at which something comes into being
