Grinning Monkey

So, there are times when I think about Iran having nuclear missiles, and Dick Chenney using our army to steal oil, and Hamas being voted into power, and China having a 100,000,000-man army, and George Bush plunging us into inescapable debt, and the religious right extinguishing freedom of expression; and I look with dismay at the towering pile of motions, arbitrations, reports and trials toppling over onto my desk, and I start to get a little tired.

But then, after 5:00, I get in my car and drive down the road to pick up the monkey. She is usually busy playing with the bigger kids, or sometimes she's just sitting there eating dirt, but when she sees me, her eyes light up and she flashes the whole set of chompers, and somehow, all of that other garbage just gets forgotten.

    That really wasn't that bitchy. Try again. I'm not convinced yet.
