My package from j.crew, and a sizable box from MN...which I knew could mean only one thing,
Monkey Is Here!
Immediately I ripped open his box, dug him out of his confines, and gave him a proper hug, welcoming him to Naperville, IL. At that precise moment our friendly neighborhood mailman, Juan, arrived. Time for the first photo op of this tour...out Monkey went into the sunshine for a quick hug with our tireless mail carrier!
When he came back inside, Monkey asked me about box #2, so I showed him my shorts. I neglected to mention to you yesterday that there were actually 2 pairs ordered...the blue & orange, and also the light pink with green shamrocks. I asked Monkey what he thought of them (we hardly know each other yet I'm anxious already for his approval):
He seems especially smitten with the crazy print. No surprise there!
We don't have much time before I head out again on my next leg of errands. So even though Monkey asked me for "a stiff drink", the best I could manage on such short notice was a crisp Diet Coke. With his sandwich, banana, and cupcake, I think he'll be Ok for now. The stronger stuff will just have to wait.
We are off to pick up the kids at school and get their haircut! Monkey seemed a little disappointed at first to find out that he's landed in a suburb of Chicago and that we are far from the hustle & bustle of city life. But I think I can show him a good time.
More to come!
