What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

That's About Right

You Belong in 1986

Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

Have you taken this quiz? I was definetly a child of the 80's. Well, not so much a child, of course.
1986 ROCKED!

    Even though 1986 was my senior year, according to your survey I belong in 1963. That's 5 years before I was even born! Oh well. I've been feeling a little bit out of place lately. Now I know why. Long live the Oldies!
