They never stopped talking about it throughout the night. They talked and talked and even managed to keep the cat awake.
“What have you started?” My wife asked.
“It’s just a bit of fame. Monkeys like it just as much as we do.”
“By we, do you mean, you?”
My wife has a monkey. It’s not a real one (it’s a cuddly toy), but it is real. It is older than our eldest daughter and always sides with my wife during debates involving me. I have come to realise that Acky is as much a part of our life together as…well as me.
He is not going to feature in this post because I haven’t received parental permission. I did notice that he was rather interested in the other monkeys that shared a post yesterday. It may have been that they were very cute. It may have been that they lived in the wild. It may have been the fact that they couldn’t stop chattering about it all night long.
I have a sneaky suspicion that Acky was little envious of their newly found fame.
