Ellis of the Apes

I think that Ellis’s introduction to the Disney movie Tarzan will long endure as a childhood rite-of-passage of sorts for him.  The first time we watched the movie, it hadn’t even ended before he was jumping off the furniture and planning a trip to the jungle to find the best swingable vines.  Fast forward a month or two; the vines have been swung, the Tarzan movie soundtrack has been duly memorised, and we came upon another rite-of-passage: a bunk bed.  Leave it to Ellis to dream up the rest. 


I wasn’t kidding about those vines!
