The Constipated Elephant is a mystery of a ninety-nine-year-old lady, Claire, who spins her life out to her nurse, Rosie. In turn, Rosie desires to write Claire's life story. Her husband, John, who works for the FBI warns Rosie to be careful. Humor, serious, and sorry tales evolve either through Claire's conversation or in her journal, at which Rosie finds and copies it, discovering how Claire's secret desire is not to let her children ever know what truly happened in her life. Sheriff George is out of the picture in this one as it involves FBI. However, he is asked to help out with his local knowledge of the main character.
