They say that if you put a monkey in front of a typewriter, and give him long enough, you’ll get a novel. Well, that’s exactly what happened. I was taken from my jungle home many years ago and since then have lived with my owner, Sue, in her home in Tallahassee, Florida. When I was really little, Sue tells me, I was captured by some very bad people and taken back here to America where she then took me in and saved me from “my ultimate demise”. Sue’s a bit dramatic. But she does love monkeys and trees so, I forgave her. Anyways, I have been living with her since before I can remember and she’s pretty awesome.

English class is my favorite class that I take online (could you guess?) but my very favorite class would have to be either P.E (basically me just running around outside), or lunch.
