I’ve had this monkey for over 50 years and I still expect him to talk. There’s a lever in his back so I can shake his head “no” and nod his head up and down for “yes”, and I love his expression. Cranky and mysterious? Amused and wise?
Today he says, “Aren’t you done writing that book yet?”
Why haven’t you jogged around the driveway this morning?
What are you having for dinner? Not cheese and crackers again! Not popcorn!
The window sills need painting.
Your music needs organizing.
Your violin needs new strings.
Did you take your kelp supplements?
I like the new quilt you’ve got going over there on the design wall. Reminds me of the jungle.
