Elephant Really Wanted iPhone

"As we stood there, we were all admiring the beauty of this animal by taking photos and petting it as it was reaching out to us. I stood there smiling with joy, as elephants are one of my favorite animals, so I started to take some photos. I thought to myself, “Wow, no one is going to believe I was this close to a real live elephant” but boy did I get “close.”

"Next thing I knew, WHAM!! Right in the side stomach. I felt like 10 people had punched me at once as I was catapulted backwards and my phone flew forward to the ground. I abruptly crashed into one of the people that was on our trip and he stopped my fall, but the “abrupt” feeling of surprise was still there! Yes, I had the wind knocked out of me, no it didn’t hurt, yes I’m okay, and yes I still love elephants!

"It took me a couple of minutes to fully process the fact that I just got smacked by a real living elephant."
