The only thing that the summer won’t change is that I still have to do chores. I wish I could get a vacation from them too. Mama Monkey says there is never a vacation from chores. There is always something to do. I think she is mistaken. I think she secretly likes doing chores. Mama Monkey told me this morning when I am out of school for the summer, I have more time to do a few more chores. This is not a good thing. I hope I don’t have to do as many chores as when I got in trouble the last time. I had no time to play. She said it won’t be nearly that bad, but I don’t trust it. Down with chores!
I did hear some good news today though. I get to avoid Little Ape for the entire summer! I overheard him talking to Orangutan this afternoon during recess. Little Ape said that he is going to visit his family—that means that I don’t have to see him until school starts again! I think that makes up for the extra chores I have to do. This summer is going to be great!
