Pregnant With an Elephant

Currently reading Bernard Cornwell's 2014 book about The Battle of Waterloo.

Field Marshal Blücher, who was in charge of the Prussian forces, is described thus: "He was popular, much loved by his troops and famously prone to bouts of mental illness during which he believed himself pregnant with an elephant fathered by a French infantryman."

Clearly he was an elephant short of a circus...

Had problems with the internet dropping out intermittently over the last week. Phoned BT Customer Support and they promised to monitor it and sent me a text along with the opportunity to reply if it happened again. Here's a short extract.

Give me strength!

  1. Send in Field Marshal Blücher!
    Oh wait, on second thoughts, he may be more useful in sorting trunk call problems than internet problems...
