Pink Sock Monkey


Home-hunting and a garbage surprise!

Posted on Saturday, February 8, 2009

It’s a day for driving around to empty homes to see if they want to spend all their monkey dollars to live there!

Pink Monkey and her partner in monkey crime finally heard back from their broker who told them how much money the big businesses will give them to have their first monkey abode.  They’re both very excited.  While the loan dollars are probably just pocket change for Mr. Buffett, to Pink and Blue Monkey, it’s the start of a place to call their own.   They look forward to using it and then repaying it for the next 3 to 4 decades of their monkey lives.

Pink Monkey’s partner in monkey crime is such a handy monkey that even if they get a home with lots of holes and broken floors, he can fix it up in no time with his handy monkey paws.  Look at the amazing wooden stairs that he made!

They’ve been talking to their fellow monkey friends about their home-hunt excursions.  On Friday, they had dinner with friends at an italian place that was so sardine-packed busy inside that they had to eat out on the patio in the windy cold rain.  The owner was very nice and gave the girl monkeys’ blankets to wrap around their legs.  Pink Monkey’s was a plaid blanket that made her think of scottish people and the skirts the men wear and the one boy who wore his to school one day when Monkey was a teenager and all the other boys in the school beat him up after classes were over.  He never wore his plaid skirt again.  

Anyways, they all shared a cheese ball for an appetizer and then Monkey had ravioli with a pink shrimp sauce.  Monkey likes pink.  It makes her feel happy inside.  Then they went to play Apples to Apples which is a game that has nothing to do with apples or apples but rather nouns that go with verbs like touchy-feely is to Helen Keller like awesome is to Monkey’s microwave.  

Then yesterday Monkey’s partner in monkey crime made her another delicious breakfast with perfect eggs that sat in cups just waiting to be eaten.

For such a strong manly monkey, he sure makes delectable dishes.

Then last night they went to dinner at a friend’s house who live in a nice neighborhood in a cozy home with a yard and trees and rooms for their three kids and lots of light and laughter and it made Pink and Blue Monkey think that that would be a wonderful thing to look forward to for their home where they can have all their monkey friends over for food, warmth and fun and she can make make them barbeque or chili or pizza like the one she made the other night.

But the best surprise of all was when they came home last night.  In a big dumpster right by their condo was a brand-new friend waiting to be friends with Pink Monkey!  So Monkey rescued her brand-new friend from the garbage and now he has a new home with Monkey and her partner in monkey crime.  He’s a little dirty and smelly right now, but he’s going to take a bath soon.  His name is Eeyore.
