A Monkey Story

My first wife, Kathleen, and I went to Cozumel, Mexico on a vacation. We bored of the Western tourist filled leeward side and rented a mo-ped to explore the windward side. We zigged and zagged along the abandoned coast. As all of the Islands in the stream, the windward side was windy and inhospitable. Not the tourist attraction. We stopped at a gas station/bar/shop/whore house/drug purchasing venue; and no one came out to greet us. But there was a monkey chained to a pole in the sandy front. My wife, a tall, red head, with Irish Rose white skin, and freckles, decided to pet the cute little creature. The monkey like a dog in a pound begged for her attention. Chains rattled as the love hungry cutie clamored into Kathleen’s outstretched arms. The touch hungry animal scrambled up her arms and onto her head. My wife sought to dislodge it from her hair and return it to her arms. But the communication broke down. The monkey viewed her attempt to extract it from her hair, as an aggressive move to throw it onto the ground. The now vampire like beast was fighting for its life with teeth barred to keep from being thrown down. His open jaws snapped in my wife’s face. The more she panicked to rid herself of the death threat, the more the primate tried to slash, and hold on to her face. When I engaged, the beast hung onto my wife’s hair just inches from her face, with teeth mashing, and screams emitting. My wife performed the exact same primate display.

I took my camera; an old style SLR of sturdy frame with a camera strap and smashed the little ape in the face. He fell to the ground and ran up the post. I consoled my wife and hoped some hombre did not come out of the bar and kill me for hurting his monkey. We drove away on our little mo-ped.

Some stories are better off left untold, I think.
