This morning, as he was getting dressed, Duhdee grabbed a belt. Monkey loves belts though he won’t wear one himself. As Duhdee threaded the belt through the loops, Monkey grabbed the buckle and said, “Pull!” And he did.
Duhdee, understandably, exclaimed, “Heyyy!” ((Monkey loves it when we exclaim “Heyyyy!” It is his raison d’etre and he will do anything he can think of to get that reaction. Then, of course, he laughs hysterically.))
Monkey looked up at him, grinned and replied, “Oh, dear!” à la Winnie the Pooh.
I suspect he was not being sincere…especially since he did it again not a minute later.
