Pen Whatevers and Monkey Havens

What do they call pen pals these days? Email pals? If I am writing emails with someone, does that mean he is my pen pal or my email pal? Or wait, keyboard pal? Is “pal” even used these days? I feel like I am showing my age.

Anyway, I’ve been exchanging emails with someone and for the last ten minutes or so I have been trying to think of what to write for today’s post. I started reading Twitter and there was a tweet about monkeys. And then another. And I couldn’t help but remember my whatever pal mentioning a random monkey sanctuary. I had to laugh in response to this because if a monkey sanctuary is random, that makes me think there must be loads of monkey sanctuaries. I began to imagine this random one being a small one off the beaten path. A nice little monkey bread and breakfast.

I need help, don’t I? I almost wrote about how my book reading schedule has gotten off thanks to my week in bed but that would be boring. Monkeys are always entertaining haha!

    Monkeys are very entertaining. When your neighbors don’t keep their… uh private lives… private, they sound like monkeys. I’m tempted to send one a text to ask if he can stuff a sock in his GF’s mouth.
