Silent Things

Someone asked for extra cheese on their slice of pizza yesterday and the man behind the counter began liberally sprinkling the grated mozzarella onto the slice.

I realized that this action was totally quiet, it did not make one sound. I have been trying to think of other actions that are completely silent since yesterday, it is sort of difficult:

snow falling
birds gliding

and then I thought that even though we are unable to hear these things, maybe they make some kind of a sounds beyond are capability and maybe when the pizza was being sprinkled with extra cheese an elephant somewhere was awakened.
