Excuse Me

| | Comments (2)

I've been missing from the blog world for the last few months. During this little time off I've been growing SCK (I added another physical store to my distribution network) and helping my monkey grow. One of my missions in the later arena has been to teach monkey good manners. This has become a bit of a joke with our friend group, so much so that we received a lovely gift from some friends in that vein.

I have been extremely proud that monkey has taken to using please and thank you largely unasked. At times he's even taking to thanking himself, it's pretty damn cute. Some how, though we haven't been prompting him, he's picked up excuse me too.

Last night, we walked to the local Mexican place for dinner and margaritas to ring in the new year. Along a narrow stretch of sidewalk a large woman approached, monkey stepped to the side, smiled at her and said excuse me. My heart just about burst at that moment. I'm not kidding when I say that I got a little teary eyed.

I can't wait to see what 2009 holds. Happy New Year to all of you, may 2009 bring you much joy!



Your opinion, this your opinion

What a great story! Made me smile.
