The Monkey Chase
-----very loosely adapted from the Talmud story
Long before you were born--long before even I was born--Gelahshinke was called away on a trip. On his return home some days later, he thought it wise to bring his wife a very fine present to show her he was thinking about her. After much thought he ended thinking a peacock would be a nice gift. The peacock would strut in the garden and fan her features. My, what a beautiful sight that would be.
