More Like Heard, And Not TodayAnyway, as some of you know, I happen to live next door to a family of howler monkeys. Well, when Mr. Howler-Monkey returned home from work yesterday afternoon, he apparently bumped the panic button on his key ring. The car alarm started going off, and for whatever reason, he took his sweet time turning the raucous thing off. This went on for several minutes, and I grew annoyed.
I picked up the key ring to my truck, and set off my panic button. The neighbor took the hint and finally stopped his. I turned off my alarm, but still heard a great deal of honking. I had started the whole neighborhood in setting off their panic buttons! I was only slightly embarrassed, but I haven't laughed that hard in a few days.
