Elvii

ElviiRose looked around her old estate in shock. It looked much the same, but she couldn't believe the people. "When are we?"

"Five years after we met."

"What happened?"

"When Elvis Presley died in 1977, there were 37 Elvis impersonators in the world. By 1993, there were 48,000, an exponential increase. Today, every third person is an Elvis impersonator."

A group of small Elvii ran past them, heading for school.

"You're loving this, aren't you?" Rose glared at the Doctor. "Of all the dodgy statistics examples to actually come true, it had to be this one."

"Thank you very much."

I find it amusing. Why the coda that I don't have to live there.

LOL yeah!

Apart from the obvious reason, I find it scary to realise that Elvis died so long ago and yet I was already an adult. Arrrrgh!

Sorry.

It's never fun to get those reminders. Kind of like being able to say you saw all the Star Wars films at the cinema on a first run. Now if only I can erase the memory of the craptacularness of the prequels...
