I recall a story from my childhood in which the elves came at night to help a cobbler make shoes. As a matter of fact, I’ve heard that Keebler uses an elf as their mascot since “Keebler” sounds like cobbler.
I want to know where MY elves are.
I don’t expect them to go to work for me, but elves who made coffee, fixed broken things, etc. would be mighty helpful. So far, none have shown up, so I have to do those things myself.
Oddly, when I do, my wife has this funny Mona Lisa smile.
I’m with you! Imps seem to love to come along and break things around the house, but the elves have abandoned us modern folk.
