'I've got a present for you,' said the LSO. He'd been for a walk and he could have passed shops but this wasn't from any shop.
It was a tentacle. I can't call it a branch because it doesn't look like one. Tentacle is far more suitable and it had been blown off a monkey puzzle tree.
Here's a close up. Brush it one way and it's quite smooth. Try in the opposite direction and you know why it's the only tree a monkey can't climb!
It's the best present I've had in a long time. I love it. Now all I need is a monkey.
