Mimi and I took Lumpy shopping today. First stop was for curtains. Lumpy was a bit of a maniac in that pretty store. Everybody else was behaving nicely, but he was trying out the beds, climbing up the walls, playing hide and seek - all the things a monkey thinks are fun.
When we went to Trader Joe's, we got smart and made him sit in the shopping cart like a good little monkey. That lasted until he spotted the bananas! You know how monkeys feel about bananas. So we bought some bananas for him.
Then a lovely lady gave him a balloon because he was being so good. That made him happy, and he sat very nicely in the cart ..... until he spotted another monkey in the store!
You wouldn't believe how long it took us to coax him down from there!
However, we did, and we bought our groceries and skedaddled before Lumpy could make any more mischief.
