mini monkey post


After a visit last night that included her telling The ACN the following joke on the phone: “Snowflake, why is Tigger stinky? Because he sits next to Pooh.” The Monkey was getting ready to go home.

She put on her giant school bag and we walked to the door. She spun around in circles a few times, looking for her shoes and pretending that the school bag was weighing her down.

She suddenly and inexplicably started talking in an old lady voice:

“Where are my shooooes, sonny? Oh… there they are. Ohhhh. Sore back. My spine doesn’t work like it used to. Did you know, that in 1986… in 1986 I was in the World War II. It was a good time. Ohhh. One of these times I am going to break in two, there. (As I held the door open for her.) You’re pretty tall for a young fella.”

    Why do you call her the Monkey? I think you should start calling her something more appropriate and creative, like…”Clowny”.
    Har har har. I crack myself up.
    Er…um. Yeah.

    mindy: Hmmm. I think it was her daddy who started calling her the “little monkey” when she was a baby. It just stuck.

    Peter, I was just killing some time and reading some of your old posts… back in April 2006 you have a post titled Airport Bar. I loved it! You had me totally hooked, and the ending was perfect.

    Since you’ve opted to not allow comments on the post above this, I’m just going to comment here.

    Peter, whoever has been giving you a hard time about the girl commenters is just jealous. Simple as that. You are a dreamboat.

    And if they still give you a hard time, I’ve made a naughty list of people I’m going to beat down with a baseball bat in the next few weeks so I would be happy to add them to it.

    *big smooch*
