Monkey Business

If anyone needs evidence on the theory of evolution, they can use my boys as reference. Seriously, they are monkeys. Baboons, actually. You could put them in a coffin and they'd still find a way to do something stupid. On the plus side, they hardly ever claim to be bored. On the down side, perhaps they'll never become mature enough to join the rest of society.

Case in point, this is what they do on a 10 minute subway ride.

It's their reflection in the window. Judging by their facial expression, you'd think it was either the first time they'd seen it or they think that's Harpo Marx on the other side. Most people read or listen to their i-Tunes but my guys put on a show with their buffoonery. Next time, I should walk around the car with a collection cup. They're cuter than the Mariachi trio anyway.

We visited Grammy for Mother's Day weekend and presented her with a framed picture of Samu's Kindergarten graduation pictures. The school took them back in March and I was happy that Samu didn't look retarded. Of course, when Zuki saw them, he said, "Is Samu a chef now?"


"No - he's getting married." 

Anyhow, the point is he smiled nicely for the camera and refrained from eating spaghetti for lunch.

That's why we didn't order pictures for Zuki this year. Because he's missing a lot of teeth. And because he has a tendency to pose like this:

  1. Your boys sound like they keep you from getting bored. :)

  2. "Is Samu a chef now?" That's funny. :) There was a giant cardboard cutout Pillsbury Dough Boy in the grocery store a couple days back, and Lily was totally psyched that Frosty the Snowman was making a spring appearance.
    Your boys rock.

    1. I'm sure the Pillsbury Dough Boy gets that a lot - being mistaken for Frosty. It's the stupid hat.

  3. Zuki's an oxymoron in that get-up.

  4. Zuki's pic in that thor helmet reminds me of my own kid- you saw my most recent post on costumes, right? haha! I love the subway pic- It reminds me of lots of subway rides in Seoul, Korea. Except, the subways were so packed that I remember literally lifting my feet off the ground to see if I would be suspended in the air by the sheer pressure of the bodies pressing against me- and I was. :)

    1. Asia is crazy with their subways. People are constantly breaking their ribs in Tokyo from being packed in. Why can't they start work at staggered times? Nuts, I tell ya. And yes, your costume post was so fashionable - loved it.

  5. I want to ride on the subway! Haven't gotten to since I was in Chicago last year.

    1. I like Chicago's subways, too. New York's MTA just overcharges you and makes you wait for a dirty train.
