Yes kids, apes are truly remarkable creatures. All one has to do is go to the symphony and see their incredible accomplishments in music. They can not only compose and invent instruments but they can also develop musical notation and sing. I think they had a band called The Monkees.
Mind you, they are not just straight face concert goers. They also love to laugh at a good joke and they write them by the dozens. Oh yes, they are known to excel at the arts. But anyone would know this who has taken their best ape friend to a drama love story film. After all there is nothing an ape loves more than to have a good cry at the movies, at least the lady apes that is.
But they are also quite bookish as their proven abilities in geometry, algebra, physics, medicine, engineering and other sciences show. Their military ingenuity is out of this world. As soon as they get tired of eating a banana, you just watch them; they will be building an aircraft carrier in no time.
And clothes??? Oh don't mention that! The last thing you want to do is take an ape to the shopping center. They get so hung up on clothes you’ll never get them out of there.
Apes are not entirely materialistic however as they have a spiritual side too. They can often be seen thinking about things beyond just what they see, and praying for their fellow apes. Apes are not selfish though as they usually set a portion of their bananas to share with needy chimpanzees and baboons in other countries.
Speaking of bananas, and I really shouldn't say it because Elsie is so modest and tends to blush but she is a great cook. Banana cream pie is her specialty. Souffles, casseroles, and any international dish you can think of she can do blindfolded. Lastly, please pray for Elsie as she is finishing up university for her law degree and she is finding her final exams rather stressful. Justice is very important to a being like her you know; always thinking about right and wrong. She may not be as gifted in studies as your average ape but boy, is she determined. As a minor in her Master’s program, she is studying midwifery just in case law does not work out. She thought she would like to assist her fellow gorillas during labor. Compassion is one of her strong suits.
She does like to reflect on what is going on around her and she is a most dedicated with her journal. As most apes (and other animals of course) she is not just focused on the present, but also thinks much about yesterday and tomorrow. This may be why she can be seen at church as her ability to conceive of eternity has profoundly affect her life.
Well, I have to leave soon. Elsie and I are going out dancing tonight. She just loves to dance and what a gorgeous outfit she put together. She's the best.
I can't wait to bring her home and introduce her to mom. So what if Elsie can only grunt and hoot. Mom will be soooo proud as after all, apes are just like us. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
