We've all heard it before; we all know what it means: Keep It Simple Stupid. Well I must admit that I'm the "stupid" in this case, the simpleton if you will. Every night at dinner Monkay and I play a glorious game that causes me fits of laughter. On occasion we have to give Monkay a gentle reminder to play the game, as she can be somewhat of a simpleton as well. Here's how it goes:
We all sit down to dinner: Gregg, Hannah, and I. We have a small table in a breakfast nook area, so Gregg takes the seat nearest the windows and faces the kitchen. I take the seat on the short end of the table facing the living room and backyard patio. Hannah either sits in her high chair between Gregg and I, or in a booster seat across from Daddy. She tends to prefer the high chair so she can see the TV (gasp... yes, we leave the TV on during dinner some nights). Anyway, we sit down to eat, Monkay comes rubbing around my legs, I pet her. Then she moves on to rubbing around Gregg's legs, he makes a comment about her fur being "coarse" and then says, "Go-way Monkay!" She skedaddles out of the kitchen through the living room and into the Master bedroom. Then she goes and peers out the door which leads to the back patio, which just happens to be directly across from where I sit. So I giggle hysterically and yell "HI MONKAY!!" while waving madly as she peers out the back door. It takes her a few moments to realize that I'm hooting and waving at her - completely blank look on her face at this point. The you see it register that she's the subject of my outburst, and she wanders back out of the bedroom, through the living room and dining room, and back into the kitchen where the whole process begins again. Simple? Yes, absolutely! Entertaining? COMPLETELY!!
