Today, a friend and I, kind of for her birthday, went up to Nikko (a city in Japan). We did several neat things, saw some beautiful stuff, and we had a very good time.
However, the most odd and somewhat amazing part was when we pulled down a small road in the middle of town to get to the parking lot behind the city information center. What to our wandering eyes did appear, but a band of monkeys playing in the road!
I halfheartedly attempted a photo as we pulled nearer, but they wandered off as the car got closer to them. When we walked into the information center, I stopped at one spot next to the wall and hovered my hand over a specific spot where I had seen one of the monkeys perched a few minutes beforehand.
“A monkey was just sitting here!” I declared. “A monkey’s butt was right here,” I happily exclaimed. “I want to touch it, so as to have been on the same ground, but I’m not going to touch it, because a monkey’s butt was just here, but how cool is that?! A monkey was just right here!”
So I was five for a minute there. It was splendid. 😛
