Duffy , " This is my best friend. His name is Yummy and he is a monkey. I take him everywhere I go and he sleeps with me at bed time. The top of his head is getting spotty 'cause ( it's a secret so don't tell anyone) , I like to suck on his head as I fall asleep. Or when I am happy. Or when I am sad. Or during the day as I watch cat politics whooshing by me. I love Yummy. He is my best friend. Well, I already said that . I guess it's worth repeating though ."
Yummy Monkey , " Well , it's not all shooting stars and roses . Some times the love-in can get kinda rough and I end up legless. Or armless. Or earless. Hatless even. That's right . I used to have a swell, dapper some might even say , red , felt hat. Until Duffy chewed it off , ate it . And pooped it out . "
Yummy Monkey , " If I sit here long enough , LP will eventually notice me and stitch me back up again. She's pretty good as long as I have the missing parts. She couldn't do much about my ears. Duffy ate those.Then pooped them out of course. I didn't want them after that . Naturally ."
Yummy Monkey , " Most of the time when these things happen , Duffy waits with me . He feels bad about it ."
Yummy Monkey, " After LP stitches me up , she gives me a bowl of my favourite cereal . The funny thing is , I love Duffy too. He is my best friend . "
Have a terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.
