My Apprentice the Ape
The ape had stolen his research apparatus! But now the anthropologist was going to make hime pay! He had always thought his apprentice might be apt to make some stupid mistake that could cost hime dearly,but the apprentice's aptitude had failed him when he pretended to be an anonymous archeology student in front of his own wife. How could she not recognize him? No one was larger or heavier in all the university----that's why they had started calling him "the ape".
The anthropologist wasn't appalled to learn that his wife had played along with the game,and ,not wanting to stop baking and take her apron off, let his [b][color=#ff0000]apprentice through the arch into his secret office. That was when he stole the apparatus! And his wife soon realized that she had made a mistake.
Now,as his antagonism was again rising and he had almost reached the house,the anthropologist was certain that he would be able to apprehend the ape and appease his thirst for revenge.
As he turned in an arc to stop his car in front of the driveway, and he saw that his apprentice had also seen him, he could tell that the ape was making an appraisal of his escape options. Quickly the anthropologist stepped out of his car, grabbed the antenna, broke it off and threw it at the apprentice. He couldn't help but applaud his aim when it punctured the ape's appendix! Knowing that the usual antonym for revenge was forgiveness, the anthropologist still did not go to help the now injured apprentice.
