What A Show

Chapter Five:Will he ever learn?
Will quickly set his purchases down on the counter and ran to front of the store. By now a crowd had gathered outside the window display and inside. An artificial tree was being used as the display with socks of every size, color and pattern hanging from the branches. Way-way up at the top was Holokai hanging on to one of the branches and waving to the crowd. The more the crowd laughed and clapped the braver he got swinging from branch to branch performing tricks for all. He was putting on quite a show and Will couldn't help himself from laughing at this sight. But a manager nearby was not in any laughing mood.
"Get that monkey down and I mean right now!" he shouted. "He is ruining the display and look at all those socks on the floor!"
Several employees nearby were discussing just how to do this when Will came to the rescue. "Holokai, get down right now before you cause any more trouble,"said Will trying to sound mad.
"But Will, do I have to? You know how I just love to climb trees! Besides look what I found... monkey socks!"
Holokai waved the socks so Will could get a better look. "Holokai, you must come down right now!" Will yelled.
Holokai waved again to the crowd and scrambled down the tree. He was still clutching the monkey socks. The manager turned to Will and scolded him for not keeping a better eye on Holokai while in the store. Will offered to fix the display but the manger waved him off. Several onlookers came over to the manager and inquired when the next show would be and how funny the monkey was doing this ricks. Some asked where in the store could they find monkey socks.
Will paid for their purchases and checked his watch. "Holokai we have to hurry. Rocky Socky will be at the bus stop soon," said Will.
Just as they headed for the door they heard the manager yell,"Stop, wait a minute!"

  1. Don't forget to add some cumin to that burrito mixture! I hope folks are planting lots of cilantro in their gardens this year. It's practically essential to good Mexican food.
