Monkeys and Otters and Bears, oh my!

Every single time the boy sends me any cute picture of any animal, he always makes sure to put a disclaimer in the email or message that no, I cannot have said animal. Because immediately upon seeing any animal do anything cute, I want one. I love animals I can't help it.

I saw a special on the animal planet (I think) about an elephant and a dog that became best friends and when the dog got sick, the elephant stood outside the clinic waiting for it. For weeks, I walked around the house stating that Kobers needed an elephant.

I really do want an otter. Those fuckers are cute. And I found out you can own an otter as long as you have a permit and can prove that you have a suitable habitat. So, operation create suitable otter habitat at Big Jed's house is in effect. I live in a condo. I think they frown upon tiny otter habitats.

So, when the boy send me this today, naturally, I wanted a monkey. Although, in my defense, I have always wanted a monkey. Doesn't everyone want a monkey? WHO ELSE AM I GOING TO SHARE MY COFFEE WITH?

Happy 4th of July everyone! Oh, and buy me a monkey. And an otter.
