Letter M reveals a true cool story


M

I’m on the letter  M . I think I skipped  couple of letters.

Today is super light hearted. I have a story about monkeys and my once upon a time ago- relationship with them.

I grew up in Africa. Monkeys were like naughty pets and  thieves.

One morning. I’m chilling watching cartoon network. I still remember what I as watching – Johnny Bravo .

 I had the sliding door open and I hear some movement behind the sofa. I turn around and there is an entire family of monkeys on the dining room table trying to steal our fruit out of our fruit bowl!

 

I screamed for my Ma. She came down and shooed them away with a broom stick.  Speaking of broomsticks I also have stories about snakes but let’s take it easy.

One story at a time .  Calm down Daisy...

My most frustrating story with monkeys goes like this

It is no secret I was a drug addict from the age of 12/13 years old.

It get’s hot in Africa and in those days keeping every window and door open was normal.

I went to have a bath or some thing and when I came back into my bedroom ready  to smoke a spliff.

No ganga.

No ready made spliff.

I DON’T NEED TO DRAW THIS OUT

The freaking monkeys came into my bedroom and stole all of  my weed and my pre made joint. I looked out the window watching them run away.

To add further insult they didn’t even smoke the shit -they just sniffed it ,handled it and threw it on the ground.

My Ma thought this was hilarious. She didn’t like me taking drugs.

Bit of a no brainer..

I did not see the funny side that day.

I do have a lot of heavier stuff I want to say about monkeys being used in research experiments but I haven’t got the time today  to give it my full attention and awareness it deserves

So this is my blogging A-Z challenge for today.

Hope you enjoyed it.

Sadly the place I was born, is now an metropolis of hotels and business developments that have driven the monkeys from their natural habitat.

But that is another topic  for another time

Wish me luck.

My final facilitating support groups training day with Healthy minds.  It has been challenging and a huge commitment but it has been totally worth it.

  1. It is sad the monkeys are losing their natural habitat. Funny story about the monkeys coming in your room. Did they jump on the bed, too. I am just thinking about that story about no more monkeys jumping on the bed.

  2. Quite similar to yours! Except that a bunch of monkeys got into our balcony and one was smart enough to get inside the house, open the refrigerator and take a mango from inside! We were spell bound! Haha, one of the best summer memories of my childhood. 😄

      • they are fast. My cousin was attacked by a money when she was a toddler. Them monkey came in the kitchen for the food and she was there roughly about the same height and it went for her. Not because it is nasty but he must have thought his meal was at threat. People need to understand why animals attack. Getting a bit more serious. It’s been a tough challenge. On one side I feel obligated to raise awareness for what happens to our earthling friends in the world on the other it is draining and depressing to read and write. So I’m glad it gotme the chance to get a bit more of a light hearted conversation going. xxx

  3. Thanks, she lives up to her name with her antics. She climbs, leaps, gets into lots of trouble and is very well loved. She doesn’t have an actual identity crisis, but Violet, our dog had some issues. She loves cats, always has, but she was acting weird. Every time we called Monkey, Violet would run to her toy box, look around and be really confused. It hit me one day when she proudly dropped one of her toys at my feet. She has a stuffed monkey toy my sister got her when our other dog died. She loves that monkey and shows it in the fact it is the first stuffed animal she hasn’t happily ripped to shreds. Well, I figured out the confusion so we decided to rename the toy, not the cat. So Violet now has a cat named Monkey, and a monkey named Kitty! Hey, it works! And I love your sense of humour. As you can see mine is pretty out there!

  4. I had to laugh at your story, I just envisioned that whole scene. Monkey’s are so cute, and yes, I am not happy with all the development around which has chased the monkeys out from their natural habitat. It is still going on, and people just don’t get it, and then moan when they come around our houses and gardens looking for food ! Another story another day, lets keep this on a happy note 🙂 xxx
