A monkey in the house
In the absence of sisters, brothers or next-door neighbours, you can encourage a large monkey to be civilised and have a tea party with you. Berry has established this after extensive post-birthday experiments.
This is A-a', the very agreeable ape sent down from Dallas for Berry's birthday by clever Grandpa Tom. A-a' was named by Berry (if you couldn't guess) and spends his days having tea parties and being pushed around in a small blue trolley.
He's generally very well-behaved, although we occasionally discover him sitting at the table with a serious expression and inappropriate things on his head. Once it was a blue Lacoste cap, turned backwards, and another time it was a small white cat known as Mischief Kitten.
Mischief and monkeys. We should definitely prevent those two from hanging out together.
(ps: I'd like to point out that I do know there's a big difference between monkeys and apes – but I don't care.)
