Support the Monkey! Tell All your Friends and Teachers
like to take a taxi to the corner of Tottenham Court Road and
get out there and tell it to wait for me, just to put the girls
in their place a bit. I wouldnt speak to them, you know.
Better wait til we get you something really fashionable.
Besides, you shouldnt cut your old friends now that you
have risen in the world. Thats what we call snobbery.
You dont call the like of them my friends now, I should hope.
Theyve took it out of me often enough with their ridicule when
they had the chance; and now I mean to get a bit of my own
back. But if Iím to have fashionable clothes, Iíll wait. I
should like to have some. Mrs Pearce says youre going to give
me some to wear in bed at night different to what I wear in the
daytime; but it do seem a waste of money when you could get
something to shew. Besides, I never could fancy changing into
cold things on a winter night.
