How To Wake Up

(from afar...around 6 a.m. Saturday morning)

*THUD*

*thumpthumpthumpthumpthumpthumpt*

Me: glurg?

(Monkey climbs in bed with me and elbows me at least twice)

Me: arughoof

Monkey: Take your hair down so I can play with it!!!

Me: nnnnf

Monkey: Okaaaay....now shake it out so it's nice and....there. That's better.

(5 minutes of silence....ahhhh)

Monkey: (suddenly sitting bolt upright) Look!!! I can grab my hand like this...

Me: eurgh?

Monkey: Here. You try it!

Me: (rolling over) Um...wha?

Monkey: Grab my hand...here....like this.

(I attempt to oblige through slitted eyes)

Monkey: See? You can't squish it all the way. Wanna know why?

(...this is a rhetorical question. I wait.)

Monkey: (knowingly) ....because of the bones.

i think i did the same exact thing to my mom and dad, too. only . . . they're karate teachers. so the fun and games ended abruptly when one of them would get annoyed and kick us out. literally.
