Maryam kissing Monkey. Now I know what you're thinking, that's not a monkey! And I know that, trust me, I know that. BUT, Maryam thinks that it is. The history of the "monkey." Last Friday after OT I took Maryam to the new Joanne's that opened up in Palm Desert. I had to pick up a few more items for a project I was working on. Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE HALLOWEEN! Consequently, we spent a lot of time walking up and down the Halloween aisles a million times. One pass through Maryam points and yells "monkey!" I look over and say, where? Nope, no monkey. And I keep walking. When we passed through the aisle again she did it again, she pointed and yelled, "monkey!" I turn and see hundreds of scare crows. I see ghost head ones, pumpkin head ones and vampire head ones. I ask her, "where is this monkey?" She points and almost in tears says, "my monkey." I look again and she's pointing to this vampire scare crow. I pick it up and say "this?" and she smiles a HUGE smile and reaches for it saying "my monkey!" So I bought it. SUCKER!
