Girl's New Boyfriend

When I was little my Grandma had a giant stuffed monkey in her basement (actually Grandma had a lot of stuff in her basement, but the stuffed monkey and the full-sized mannequin, Annabelle- with her tons of outfits and wigs-were by far the best) Although Annabelle didn't survive until the 90's, the monkey did and when Grandma left her house on 57th place for her tiny apartment, I got the monkey.
Boy was terrified of it, so we've had it in storage for a long time. But when we were cleaning the garage I took it out of a box and put it on a shelf in there. The other night, Mr. H. and Girl were looking for a jump rope and found the monkey. Girl wanted it and has been dragging it everywhere and calling it her boyfriend, Tanika. She even dressed Tanika up.

P.S. He used to have a collar and a leash, but the leash never left 57th Place, and the collar disappeared long ago too.
