Tuesday the 29th

Today was a busy day for Super Monkey!! As his bio told me (as did SM himself) one of his favorite activities is kickboxing. Lucky for him I just so happen to take a kickboxing class every Tuesday at 6am! Here we are arriving at the gym, still a littly sleepy, since we had to get up at 5am to get there on time.

SM tried to use one of our gloves but sadly it was too big for him, so a fellow kickboxer gave him a ride on it instead:

My instructor was so excited to have a new student!

SM observed us for awhile first, to see what level we were at:

But then joined in when my instructor offered some personal attention (she's holding him here in the back):

After a good sweaty workout, I showered (SM didn't sweat since he's a superhero), and then we headed upstairs to work! I had to read some emails so Super Monkey sat around on my cube waiting for people to walk by so he could meet them!

I told him if he needed something super-hero-y to do to entertain himself he could take my spot on our Business Continuity Planning Team as Deputy Fire Warden. He liked wearing my hat, and hoped he could help out if there was trouble!

After I had caught up, I took SM over to the board room so he could get some experience in kicking ass and taking names. I told him he couldn't work for the man until he had mastered that skill.

Then I taught him the art of chatting at the water cooler, another important corporate company skill:

After that, he wanted a little chill time, away from cubicle land, and settled himself in our ficus to see the outside views:

Before we left work for the day I introduced Super Monkey to one of our local work mascots, Coconut George, a regular earth monkey made of coconut:

After that, we went out for Mexican food, where Super Monkey got to meet my GREAT friend Anne, as well as having some tasty chips and salsa.

Photobucket

Then we got some balloon animal friends from the restaurant's balloon guy so that Super Monkey would have someone to hang with while we had girl talk.

Now we are both exhausted! I will be watching yet another playoff hockey game, but I think Super Monkey will rest or go for a flight around the world. He hasn't been much luck yet with my Hockey team, but I think it's cause he's not really a hockey fan. More of a bowling guy as I understand it!

Wow Super Monkey, it's great to see that you're having so much fun!
Keep us updated.

PS. I especially love the water cooler photo. It reminds me of 'The Office', which i've been watching with my host-mom.

Wow, looks like you are having a blast so far. I love the photos of you standing up - truly super!

My adventures are just getting started but I'm looking forward to doing some "super" things myself. :)

Can't wait to read your further adventures...
