The Monkey Connection

“You know you have a monkey mind…”, He was speaking to me over phone.
“That doesn’t sound like a compliment”, I squeezed one of my eyes and raised a brow upward, “we are not married yet. So you should weigh your statements knowing about the possible repercussions of the same…” I cautioned him mischievously.
He chuckled. He explained further in a diligent tone, “You do exactly opposite of what you are told. You are indecisive, you jump from one thing to another very quickly. That is a monkey-mind!

“Oh Please!” I became defensive, “I don’t always do the opposite of what I am told… I follow my mind which is not of a monkey for sure.”
That day I googled the definition of Monkey mind. 

And that night I introspected intensely, whether or not he was true! 
I have been a little indecisive for sure, but I am not restless and blah! 
A year passed, we were married now.
He came from work, fairly amused on something, “Show me your wrist.” he said enthusiastically.
“Why?” I was perplexed.
He grabbed my hand and headed me to the couch of our living room. I will tell you something really cool about yourself.
Being interested in palmistry I smiled and showed my palm with a cheerful face, ready to listen something cool about me.
Now touch your pinky finger to your thumb… 
I did what I was told to, staring at his face, still beaming with excitement.
“Woah! Look at that”, He exclaimed in exhilaration, “You got a monkey gene still left in you…”
“That is gibberish.” I was frowning annoyingly. My expectations and imagination went kaput suddenly.
He showed me his wrist it was plain while mine had a small muscle emerging out after joining my thumb and my pinky finger. He showed me this video:

In a heat of revenge all I could say was, “You love eating bananas and I hate them, you have a hidden gene too…”
It was even, at least in my own mind!

  2. Interesting. I always use the term "Monkey See Monkey Do" to convey that someone is copying someone else. While on the subject of monkey, I just remembered a quote from Malcolm De Chazal. Monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey.

    1. Thanks for sharing that quote :)
