Meet me at Tarzan’s Tavern and we’ll get a bite to eat…o.k.?

Mama’s Losin’ It Challenge

5.) Create a conversation between this couple.


Ted: So, I was watching the Discovery channel the other day and they did a program on the social behaviors of various types of monkeys. Did you see it Dora?

Dora: Oh, uh…no. I think I was washing my hair.

Ted: If you’d seen it, you would have learned that there is no longer a need for you to wash your hair now that I’m around. I learned this awesome thing, let me show--

Dora: Not wash my hair? Are you going nuts?

Ted: No, just practical, it’s called Social grooming, let me show you.

Dora: Ah! What are you doing?! Ouch! That was one of my favorite ladybug earrings!

Ted: It’s o.k., this is how the monkeys did it. They would part their mate’s or best friend’s hair, look deeply at what was uncovered, usually a tasty bug, and pick it out and eat it. I’m sure it’s an excellent source of protein.

Dora: Are you saying I’ve got bugs in my hair?! I need to go uh…wash my hair. Bye!

Ted: Meet me tomorrow for lunch?

Dora: (no response, other than the fast-paced, dwindling sound of her boots, click, click, clicking away).

Very funny! I think he was a little too excited by the grooming habits of monkeys.

Too funny!

But he needs to eat the earring too! Never let a good bug pass.

Good Job.

Cute! They look like they're "grinding" to me. That's why I stayed away from this prompt. But you really have this one...Bravo!
