“Monkey see, monkey do”

This saying is one that my parents used a lot for me and my brother when we were young and now as I spend lots of time with children I totally see why. Me and my brother would copy a lot fo what my parents did, which wasn’t always a bad thing but also not always good. When I was scrolling through assignment options and this one popped up I knew I was going to do the three monkeys covering their eyes, mouth, and ears because it reminded me of this saying.

This assignment was pretty straight forward; pick three emojis, recreate them and tell a story! I took pictures of myself acting like the emoji and then added the actual emoji next to me. These emojis tell a story of a phrase my parents used. I had hundreds of emojis to pick from and I chose these three. This assignment made me think of Bob Ross’s comment “You can do anything you want. This is your world.” because I had plenty of options for emojis and I got to choose how I was going to put this assignment together.

  1. The story behind this post is perfect. I experienced this in my family too except I was the one being copied by my younger sister. When I was younger, I found it really annoying but now I see it as a compliment.

  2. first off I had no idea we had this class and 420D together! Also that story is adorable. I did this with my uncles when I was three, but it ended up with me say the f word for the first time. Real proud moment for my mom there, my uncle almost didn’t live to see another day.

  4. I can’t believe we have this class and 420D together and I did not realize until now. That was an adorable story! I have a similar experience but it was me learning my first curse word from my uncle.
