He was a good little monkey, and always very curious.
"You wait here, George, and don't get into trouble."
It is easy for a little monkey to forget.
As only a monkey can . . .
Can you tell we are in a Curious George phase? I do love reading to Maddie and Riley and I am glad that they love to have me read to them and I understand that repetition is the Way of the Toddler, but yikes. Between reading the same books over and over and the fact that the George stories are the very definition of formulaic, I am getting weary.
It's Riley who is the real George afficianado. Maddie has more eclectic tastes, although lately she favors Arthur. Am I alone in my desire to smack Arthur's sister, D.W.? What does D.W. even stand for? And why must she have such an irritating personality?
A propos of nothing, how funny is it that UkeFest 2009 is taking place on Reed's campus this week? It's pretty hilarious to see all of these ukulele players wandering around campus, and small groups jamming in the corridors. I guess the organzier is a Reed alum and it's a sold-out event. Pretty awesome.
