Every year people ask me for “what I want” for my “birthday.”

After the cut, a complete list.

World peace.

“But I want to pick something out just for you!”
Magical realism. Kafka? Mythology of some culture — I took a Mexican folklore class, it might be interesting to follow up with other regions.

  1. You listed ” monkey” twice. So…like a real one, that poops and stuff and that you have to diaper in the house, or a stuffed one, that sits on your bed, that you can hug at night? I’ve always wanted a monkey too. No, maybe a chimp, except they get big and aggressive. Actually, I’d like to work in an animal rescue center for monkeys and chimps. No, wait, maybe I’d like to BE a monkey or a chimp. Oh, no, now I’m totally confused…………………….

  2. If I put a diaper on it, how will it throw its own feces?

  3. Wow, a capuchin monkey is, at the very least, $500. I agree though, that would be the best gift ever. Do you think Zach would let you take it to work? You could use our burly to take it on bike rides.

  4. Zach said no, so it’s gonna have to be a robot monkey. Then I will have to get a tandem bike so my robot monkey could bike to work with me.

  5. Me and my monkey, riding our bikes
    I pass him a banana, I know what he likes
    He passes me an orange ‘cause he likes me too
    He wishes you were here ‘cause he likes you

    He’s my robot mechanical monkey
    He’s so happy and a little bit spunky
    Won’t you pet him just a little
    He might give you peanut brittle!

  6. If you get a monkey, you will have to wear a black body leotard and we will all call you “Dieter.” And then we will leave. Quickly.

  7. Or you will have to become a trucker, but not just any trucker, a crime solving, woman getting, chip owning trucker.

  8. BJ and the Bear?

  9. That’s right baby.
