Who's a cheeky monkey?

I'm turning into a monkey.

I can see it. There's no denying it now.
It's all really gotten quite out of hand.

Best I can tell, I'm some kind of orangutan.
My elbows bend weirdly now. My knees come up to my ears when I sit.

My knuckles are dragging on the ground. They look hairier, too.
So do my toes. My feet look like they've been stretched in a taffy puller.
I'm continually making kissy-noises with my lips or showing my teeth to no one.
Or chewing on my fingers.
Or raising my arms in the air and clapping.

I jump around with purpose. I hop off the furniture. I slap the ground.
I let out ear-piercing cries from the back of my throat.
I roll and sidestep over rough terrain.
I slap my back. Sometimes I run with my arms in the air, not clapping.

I make more funny noises with my mouth. I put my fingers in my nose.
I scratch my bottom in public.
I have a desire to play with my friends' hair.
I just ate this bug I found.

Well ... at least I know it's happening.

i watched you very carefully today to see if you would comb my cats' hair for lice and then eat them (the lice, not the cats). thankfully though, i think they don't have lice.

You're not a monkey; you're lovely.
