Monkey See, Monkey Do!

 

It’s all right for you lot, out there in the shade. Look at those hats that keep the sun off of your head, from out of your eyes. Me, I’m in here, sweating in the sun.

Then of course you get to go off and buy those chilled drinks, to stand there with ice cream cones, licking the melting ice cream as it begins to drip. I bet they cool you down.

Me, I’m kind of stuck here – watching you, watching me.

But then there is the spark of an idea. It could work, I know I could do it and if I bide my time I might just get the opportunity.....

Yes! I think I can reach it. He’s not expecting it so it comes away easily from his hands. I don’t want what’s inside so I just toss the contents back out and watch all these homo sapiens run around gathering up the bits and pieces, returning them to the man.

Then I set to the job at hand. A careful tear here, and a careful tear there and look! sun hat! Just like yours!
