Topic: the power of the espresso monkey shirt (4 msgs / 84 lines)
1) From: Tara Kollas
So I decided a month or so ago when placing an order for beans with SM
that I wanted a monkey shirt.  I bought a large, thinking I could
always wear it as a nightshirt or to work out in.  It's so big, it's
ridiculous.  So I give it to my husband.  My two year old sees it and
loves it.  "Monkey shirt, me."  Which I interpret as her wanting her
own monkey shirt.  And I still want my own.  What the heck, they're
nine bucks.  So the next time I order something, I get two - a medium
and a small.
My family now has three of these shirts - one for my husband, one for
me and one for my two year old.  Okay, so it's more like a monkey
dress for her.  But she loves it.  She just about passed out when she
saw that she had her own monkey shirt.  She usually only reacts that
way to Elmo, who I'm convinced is like crack for toddlers, so I took
that as a good and bad sign.  Good that she liked it.  Bad that she
might want to wear it constantly.  Next day, I'm trying to dress her
and she keeps saying "my monkey shirt, momma, my monkey shirt".  It's
down below her ankles and her hands barely peek out the ends of the
sleeves, it's 90 degrees outside and raining, but she'd rather wear it
than shorts and a shirt that actually fits her.
Thank God her little sister can't talk yet and express her own need
for a monkey shirt.  God help me if SM starts stocking onesies.

Can't wait until the cups arrive - we can completely coffee geek out
with our shirts and coffee cups!

And while I'm waxing rhapsodic (is that a real phrase) on all things
Monkey, I must say I roasted a 1/2 pound of Monkey blend the other
morning.  Knowing it needed time to rest, I made myself a double shot
anyway and it was terrific.  I'm now drinking a french press pot of
the Geisha blend and it's pretty great, too.
