There is a new monkey on the roof. He came in through the front door. He picked up the last remaining apple on the sideboard and moved into the lounge. I heard a noise. I was home alone. It was a tiny noise, like a button falling. Monkeys can be quiet like this. I went to investigate and there he was perched on the sofa eating an apple. All the doors and windows were closed. I was afraid he would panic and try to jump through a window or something equally dramatic. When this has happened before the culprit often bounces of walls and bookshelves before diving for the closed window. But this is a new guy. He has house cred. He looked at me and continued with the apple.
I opened the door to the stoep and got serious about asking him to leave. He moved under the table and slowed down a bit, waiting to see if that was far enough. It wasnt. Then he was out. Maybe he spent Christmas at a nearby lodge.
Christmas ah, how was yours?
