Introducing the New Guy in My Life

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

A few weeks ago, I was on a whirlwind tour of five states in five weeks.  I went from D.C. to the hills of northwest Georgia.  Then west to Texas, north to Indiana and east to North Carolina.  Along the way, I acquired a new companion.  A lone Barrel of Monkeys monkey got mixed up at a bar with a bunch of Jenga pieces.  Who could leave such a poor bereft creature behind?  Clearly, he'd broken free from the confines of his barrel, consorted with a bunch of wooden blocks of questionable stability and made his way into my life.  And so following that night at a Dallas pub (in which the rickety Jenga blocks failed me several times), Adventure Monkey joined my travels.

As noted before, I am not a particularly fine traveler.  Adventurer in heart but trapped in a definitively homebody, I don't even have my passport.  But perhaps, with the help of a swinging monkey man, I can find my way to a few more adventures in life.

Hmm, perhaps Adventure Monkey would like to take a trip to sunny Cleveland?

(Hint: no one wants to take a trip to sunny Cleveland! But still, he should consider it!)

Yay, Adventure Monkey! He seems like a fantastic traveling companion.

Perhaps, Jenn, he will be a reason to *finally* get my passport!!! :)
