Today, my daughter came along with me to run some errands and pay a few bills. She has this crazy way of seeing random things on the side of road around here. One time, we were driving home from a gig in North Myrtle at night mind you, and she started freaking out saying that she saw money on the side of the road. Thinking I was proving her wrong I circled back and there were two twenty dollar bills blowing around the ditch. So today, when she screamed, “Oh My God!!! Mom, Mom, she has a monkey!!! You have to stop!!!” I had to stop. Plus, she was moving as if she was about to open the door and jump out. I turned around, and sure enough…it was a real monkey.
Cutest little thing. Originally I planned to let her get out and put it on her social media but then I started talking to the lady and I asked her, “Where did you find a monkey? And how much did it cost?” When she responded, “$8,500 dollars” I put my car in park and went to pet the monkey. I mean, come on…how many opportunities do you get to pet an eight thousand dollar monkey? I tell you, Myrtle Beach never ceases to amaze me. I love it here.
