There’s a monkey in the kitchen

One of my favorite questions for Njeri –  our wonderful househelper, nanny, chef, and friend: “Did anything exciting happen today?” Here was yesterday’s answer.

Ever since the fruits ripened outside, monkeys have started coming around. [We are housesitting for friends about 1/2 a mile off campus.] Today, Kiara and Leila were in the back yard playing, when the monkeys came. The monkeys looked like they wanted to play with the girls; they weren’t afraid, so the girls came running into the house, “Auntie Njeri! Autie Njeri! Monkeys! Monkeys!” I was in the laundry room, so I came out into the kitchen and saw one who had climbed through the bars and was sitting on the kitchen sink eyeing the fruit basket.

    Monkeys love fruit. Here in SE Asia they will swing their way up to fourth and fifth floor balconies in order to get some fruit.

    Ok, Ranger. Now I’m the curious monkey. I’d love to know who you are. Drop me a line at benjamin.byerly AT negst.edu.
