Good Advice on Friendship

All around the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought it was all in fun
POP! Goes the weasel

Well, of course the monkey thought it was all in fun--he didn't explode.

Eli 4.2 has a jack-in-the-box that plays this tune, and while he was turning the handle I was thinking about friends.

"You know," I said, "That monkey sounds like fun. Tearing around, chasing, having a good time. I think I'd like to hang out with the monkey. The weasel, though--not so much."

"That's right!" Eli said.

"So what would you do with the monkey?"

"Hang out!" he said.

"And the weasel?" I asked.

"Just give him a hug and go!"
