Most. Important. Thing. Ever.

If someone could help me learn how to whistle before I leave the States, I would be seriously grateful. Like, bake-you-a-pie grateful. Or name-a-baby-elephant-after-you grateful.

Come on, guys. This is important!


  1. Hi Jess
    A friend of mine in college couldn't whistle but found after playing a kazoo for hours (it was a fun thing to do back in those days) she finally could whistle. I don't know if it matters, but the kazoo we used was called a "Hum-a-zoo". I'll keep an eye out for one to send to you.
    Love, Aunt Mary
    PS I can't whistle with my fingers like your Mom but I can whistle lots of songs.

  2. Hey, do you get to name all of the elephants?
