If you’ve known Denis and me for any length of time you know that it was The Monkees that brought us together. We met online, and one of the first things he did was quote Monkees lyrics to me upon finding out I was also a fan. I was hooked from that moment on.
So it was only a matter of time before we introduced The Monkees to the kids. On a recent whim, Denis put on one of the DVDs we have of the show. CootieGirl was spellbound. So every night this week Denis has put on a DVD upon arriving home from daycare.
Yesterday when Denis asked her who she liked best, she picked Micky Dolenz. MICKY DOLENZ? Really? This morning I told her my favorite was always Peter Tork, which made her giggle. I’ve no idea why – Peter is cute. Truth be told, at some point I had a crush on each of them at least once. But ended up with Peter as my favorite, with Mike Nesmith as my second favorite. I’ll be curious to see if CG keeps Micky as her top choice. Methinks she’ll eventually switch to Davy Jones just because he was the best looking in the group, and the accent. I also think she’d switch to Davy if I showed her the episode of “The Brady Bunch” where Marcia gets to meet him.
