Last night before bed, I read The Rooster a book about Gorillas.
"Primates have one thumb and four fingers on each hand," we learned.
The Rooster held up her right hand and counted.
Amazed at the result, she held up her left hand and counted.
Her eyes widened, sparkling.
"Mommy," she exclaimed, "I AM A PRIMATE!!!"
"Yes!" I said. "You are a primate."
"And YOU are a primate!"
"The Mayor is a primate, too!"
She went on to name every person we have ever met.
All of them are primates!
Good morning, primates!
