PROMPTuesday #88: Cheeky Monkey

December 30th, 2009

Was it something I said? Maybe the intestinal reference?


No matter. Here is today’s PROMPTuesday…late and unshowered.

For two days.


So it seems appropriate to talk about monkeys.


Today’s PROMPT is:

What is the monkey on your back?


Maybe it’s a monkey you’d like to push off for the New Year. Or maybe you want it around because it keeps you on your toes. Either way, I would like to hear about it, please.


I’ve been wanting to write more about my monkey for some time now, especially since I recently “forgot” to take my anti-depressants the last two weeks. But NOW, I have a new monkey. And boy howdy, he’s even cheekier than that other guy.


Anyway. I’ll tell you about him soon.


For now? What is your monkey?


Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.


First time to PROMPTuesday? Read a bit about it here.

I had already written about the monkey on my back in an earlier post, so I thought I’d share it with you. It’s a pesky little fella. I’ve been dealing with him for almost 50 years now and I think he’s enjoying the ride too much to stop now (sigh).
