My wife and I have a weird thing about monkeys.
I’ve been buying her sock monkeys for each time she was sick, her 2 surgeries last year, a flu, I can’t pass a stuffed monkey without wanting to add it to our collection.
In January when I had surgery, she came home with this little guy for me:
I used to think it was weird when people had bizarre collections.
But then when you have someone, a friend, a spouse, a child, something begins to symbolise that special relationship to you.
For my aunt and her husband, it was roosters, a friend I work with, she and her husband have a ‘thing’ with smurfs.
Do you have a special thing with someone? What is it?
