some monkey tales and more drabbles!

08Aug09

As happens from time to time, the other day The Monkey called me to go watch her so she could swim in the pool.

I said yes.

Here are some highlights:

– She swam in a sports bra and board shorts.  Both her father and aunt separately asked her why when they each got home.  “I was too lazy to go home to get a bathing suit.”  She lives next door.  (Pool is at her grandparent’s/my uncle and aunt’s house.)

– She was playing on Facebook when I arrived and made me wait.  And then wait some more while she had a snack. And then again while she had some Sunny D — which concluded with her saying “Ahhhh.  Down the hole.”  and then slapping herself on the stomach.

– “Let’s pretend I am on a game show and you are the host.   There’ll be ten events…”

Of course that was still better than the day before when I dropped in and she was playing on the computer and singing “I Like You  So Much Better When You’re Naked.”

I could actually feel my hair greying.
