Thick skinned? He’d had to be.

I didn’t really know what picture I was going to use to illustrate this six word story until I went hunting around on Pixabay. Then I entered the search term ‘thick skinned’ and elephant pictures appeared.


One of my favoured Disney films as a child was always Dumbo. The beginning, when he was being picked on and insulted because of his big ears always made me cry.

    1. Yes, Dumbo proved himself eventually, when he flew around the circus tent and became a bit of a media sensation. I’m glad you liked my little tale, Ali. 🙂

      1. Dumbo is a really sweet film – the shortest Disney animation, I believe. He’s bullied because of his big ears but then learns that he can use them to fly. 🙂
