Thinking about monkeys

I just read a quote from Mark Twain that goes like this:

“I believe that our heavenly father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.”

Well, that’s certainly funny, but I know at least one person who’s far from disappointed in the monkey. My friend Flavia’s little girl, Amelia, made her first visit to the zoo a couple of weeks ago – and has woken from every sleep, ever since, with these rapturous words: “Mummy …. monkeys!”
