When you give an elephant a bath, it seems that the first step is to ask her to sit down. You don’t tell an elephant to do things. You ask.
Once she is submerged, you may commence scrubbing. Scrubbing should be vigorous, and may be performed with any combination of hands, feet, and tools.
Once the wash cycle has been completed, and you have thoroughly washed behind her ears, you must ask her to initiate the self-rinsing cycle.Congratulations. You have now completed the instructional crash-course in elephant bathing. Splash and scrub with care and caution.
