Chuck, I have given that gift in the past, and it has done wonders for a Valentine's Day celebration. Excellent suggestion.
With regards to Monkeys of the Sea... I was the one kid in my hood that got suckered into the pet rock scheme.
The thing wouldn't do anything. Nothing at all. Wouldn't move or roll over. Just sat there all day long... like a... rock.
I am currently subscribing to the Pet Rock Triathlon Training Plan.
Nothing is happening.
