Happy Monkey Monday!
I saw this picture and it transported me back to days long ago and far away. My brother had a sock monkey! His name was Jocko. Altho my brother was older than I, he sucked his thumb and had to go to bed with his 'sock monkey everynight, long past the age when I had given up all that stuff (hehe). (Actually. come to think of it, I was never a thumb sucker and don't recall having to go to bed with a stuffed animal. Oh no, did I have a deprived childhood? Should I bring this up in therepy? Oh, but I digress.) I made fun of him and his lil monkey. He'd get mad. I remember the monkey having a hard head! Someone must have placed a rubber or hard plastic face on this sock! ( I mean really, what decent sock monkey maker does that???). Well anyway the one other memory I have about all this is that my sweet, dear, older protective brother...used to hit me on the head with it every time I made fun of him! Damn.....ya think that's why I am the way I am today????? I have sock monkey brains!
Five things I'm grateful for today:
1). My brother (RIP)
2) Sock Monkeys
3) just plain ole socks for that matter
4) the ability to heal (my ankle, remember?)
5) Soothing music
