. Today, we're talking to an unusual character. His name is Miguel. He's a brown spider monkey from South America. He's running a little bit late today. Miguel, how have you been?"
"Been great Keith, thanks. Sorry about being late. My friends and I were backstage messing around."
"I noticed. You're here with four of your friends."
"Yes. They're my good friends. My best friends. I have been around them all my life."
