Like most elves his age, Elfie enjoys his independence but still needs the support of his family. It was decided that Elfie could use my phone to get an Uber since they have established door-to-door safety standards. For extra security measures we contacted “Farm Dogs on Guard”. They sent one of their top officers, Marilyn, to spend the day with Elfie and his Uber. With the additional security measures in place, Elfie was able to do a wider tour of the farm without me accompanying him. I felt confident, he was in good hands (Paws, Hooves...Whatever).
It was noted on the app that Poppy has been known to stop along her Uber route and complete a fertilizing job, but she does her business and quickly moves on. Riders seldom complain as when booking a mid-sized SUV, they anticipate a slower paced mode of transportation. For riders seeking a somewhat faster, but still leisurely ride, Uber recommends a Granny or Gramps driver accustomed to partaking in Sunday drives.
Looking at the app we could see Elfie’s ride was just two lawns away. He quickly packed a snack of peanuts and cola, then anxiously awaited Poppy’s arrival. She pulled right up to the door so Elfie could hop on. You should of seen the grin on his face. Elfie was so excited about his big day. Once Marilyn from Farm Dogs on Guard appeared, they were good to go. I watched as they headed off for a day of fun, waving bye with the tiniest of tears in my eye. I knew this was a special day.
With Elfie safely off on his adventures, I went about my daily chores. I must say, Elfie became proficient at selfies. Taking pics of himself constantly, he quickly became the Kim K of the elf world.
First stop was to check in on Dandelion and Buttercup. Elfie got a great shot of them as they wished him a most excellent day. After visiting his friends, it was off to Billy Bobs. He heard it was like Billy Gail’s in Branson...It was NOT. No food to be found at all. This was the perfect time to snack on his peanuts and coke while moseying along down a dirt path.
With a full day of fun behind him, Elfie punched in home as his final destination on his Uber app. What a day, what a day, what a day.
