I began taking German in the fall semester and in the first week, fate placed me at the same table as Jennifer and Lonna. As well as becoming two of my best college friends, banana bread-baking buddies (we had a craving for this a lot…and we made it…a lot), and homework buddies, these two friends schemed together to get me a 21st birthday present I would always remember. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out, and I am still monkey-less. But, the thought meant so much to me.
Not too far into the semester (my birthday is in October), Jennifer and Lonna told me about a monkey they had found on Craigslist. We all laughed about the possibility, I dreamed of owning it as my own, and then I received a facebook message from Jennifer. All three of us almost died from laughter, with tears streaming down our faces as we quoted our favorite lines for weeks (years, really) to come.
Even now, I can’t read it without laughing. Perhaps, in some way, this was the birth of Little Monkey. Or, at the very least, it aided in his inception.
I put in italics, all of our favorite parts. But really, the whole thing could be in italics.
Jennifer: “look at this: as a joke, i sent an email to the monkey guy and this was the response..:
