monkey wants the stick

If you are holding something, a monkey will try to take it. any other monkeys in the vicinity will also try to take it. whoever gets it will then run off with it and rapidly dismantle it, checking to see if any bits of it are edible or fun.



that is my hand. it is not my monkey. it was momentarily my stick, but soon after this photo was taken it became the monkey's stick.

the monkey's forward hand was smacking at my fingers--quick, jabbing taps meant to make me let go, then he would grab back onto the stick with both hands.

I think you didn't want to stick enough to hold on to it. He who wants it, gets it in the end.

but he was little and cute and he wanted it.

and plus the monkey-watcher was watching me and I knew I wasn't supposed to be playing with the monkeys but he hadn't said anything yet but I didn't want to get escorted out of the monkey park for refusing to give the monkey his stick.

[pics of the monkey-watcher soon. he was -excellent-.]
