The Luckiest Monkey in the World

Today, the first human friend I ever had asked me what I want for my birthday.

I'm going to actually get to spend my birthday with this friend, this year.  We actually share a birthday.  And, for the first time in 33 years, we're going to be together on that date.

I realize that the things I have wanted in life are those things that are the hardest to get.  A safe and comfortable home.  A life partner who makes me a better monkey.  Rewarding, fulfilling, and challenging work.  The most amazing friends.

And, I have gotten every single one of those things.  I really am the luckiest monkey in the world, because I have gotten everything in life I ever really wanted.
