Monkee Map for Feb 27 - Final challenge in our Monkee Tale!

in #spunkeemonkeelast year (edited)

THE FINAL adventure of our MonkeeTale


We've set out to sea on our beautiful pirate ship! Monkee Capt'n Dreemie is at the helm, shading her good eye from the sun shining against the calm waters. The sea is like glass. It couldn't be a more perfect day. But wait! What.... What's that I see? Monkees - do you see it too? What IS THAT?!?!

We are sailing safely then out of nowhere, the ship starts approaching... an island?! ''It's the Reef of Crimson!'' yelled @purplemaze.

''We've hit the jackpot!'' screeched @skysika, @jaysmasterpiece and @raynen. As the ship got closer and closer to the island, the sand looked more like... GOLD?!

"Is it possible? Gold Monkee Island exists?" squealed @purplemaze.

"We will know more if we actually REACH the island!" warned Monkee Capt'n Dreemie. "But.... if that's Gold Monkee Island - you KNOW what the myth says! There are 3 Dangers we will face before we can even reach the Island! Is our ship and our crew skilled enough to pass them?"

The first danger!

Our ship safely docked at the island. But as soon as the crew started to leave the ship, @purplemaze spotted our rivals. The Funkee Monkees. They were taking all the treasure!

"We cant let this happen!'' Yelled @raynen.

"No way!" shrieked @skysika.

Then Capt'n Dreemie silenced everyone by shouting, "CHARGEEE!"

Every Monkee yelled out their Monkee battle cry, "Oo Oo Oooooooooooo Ahhhhhhhh!" They ran up to the Funkee Monkees and just when everyone thought it would become a great war, Capt'n Dreemie yelled, "HALT!"

In one moment, all of her loyal Monkees stopped immediately.

"Play the music! Time for a Dance Battle!!!" @raynen got us all into our formation and we performed our Master Crafted Dance Battle choreography!

After the dance was complete, the Funkee Monkees realized they could not keep up, and ran away in defeat!

"We did it! One danger down!!! Two to go!" exclaimed @purplemaze.

"Thank you Fellow Monkees, we did great!!!"@raynen did one final spinning move in celebration. "Nothing like a KPop Dance Choreo Scare!!! But I don't think we are done!!!"

"Yes, look! Here comes the second danger now!!!" howled @jaysmasterpiece.

"Is it some sea monster that we need to turn into sushi???" @worthtrying grabbed his chopsticks, ready to dine!

@raynen paused to lick his lips, thinking sushi would be great right about now - but... "Do you see what I see? Capt'n Dreemie, could this be real? Do you see those coconuts, falling one by one from the trees. Do they have eyes and mouths?"


@raynen knew that dancing wouldn't work on these coconuts! They needed something a bit more effective on their hard shells.

"Yes, I hear them!" Yelled @purplemaze. "But they're not talking, Capt'n. They're singing!"

"You're right, PurpleMaze!" exclaimed @raynen. "I think we're going to have to prepare ourselves for a riff off."

At that exact moment, the coconuts, who had been rolling ever nearer, all stopped in a line and everyone could hear them sing, "The coconut nut is a giant nut/ If you eat too much, you'll get very fat..."

They continued their song until @skysika jumped in on the word FAMILY and changed the song. "We are family! I've got all my Monkees with me!"

As all the Monkees chimed in, the coconuts one by one smashed and a spray of coconut milk filled the air. "Oh great! Let's make some milkshakes!" cheered @worthtrying, and all the Monkees laughed as Monkee Capt'n Dreemie caught the milk in her large pirate hat.

As all the Monkees filled their bellies with coconut milkshakes, they thought about how scared they had been just moments before! But the power of family was too strong to defeat, and now the Monkees all smiled at one another, looking from face to face, happy and content.

"Family... ahhhh," sighed Capt'n Dreemie. "What a wonderful feeling!"

"But capt'n," whispered @jaysmasterpiece.

"Hmmm?" The Captain looked in concern at @jaysmasterpiece's face.

"That's two." stated @jaysmasterpiece.

"Two who?" Capt'n Dreemie wondered.

"Two, true! Three's new!" exclaimed @skysika.

"Says you?" questioned @purplemaze.

"Boo hoo!" shouted @raynen.

"Give a clue?" asked @jaysmasterpiece.

"Surely do!" cheered @worthtrying.

As the Monkees were about to pull out all the stops and come up with the BEST rhyme ever... something caught their eye. Something sparkling. On the top of the mountain - shining, glittering jewels. What was causing them to glitter so brightly? It was almost as if they were.... moving.

With that, the Monkees felt the rumble.

"Oh nooooo! It's gonna blowwwwww!!!" @skysika warned

@Purplemaze paused, "Hey that didn't rhyme with..."

"SHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!" @skysika gathered her Monkee friends and started guiding them away from the rumbling volcano.

"Ah! Much better!" nodded @purplemaze , clearly impressed with her friend's ability to warn them... in rhyme!

The volcano exploded and sent the blast in EVERY direction!

"Whoa. Whoa. Whoa." yelled @raynen as he halted. "That's not lava!!!!"


After you ADD your favorite idea, time to dig on THE MONKEE map????

....but not before our MonkeeMoms dig on their SPECIAL wheel!!!

Monkee Moms. Here is your special map! There are three of you who chose to add your creativity to our story! There are 9 small prizes, 2 medium prizes and 1 large prize on the wheel for you! Spin Wisely! :) (Just choose a number and put it below @iamjadeline, @kaerpediem, and @juliamulcahy - thanks for making our story fun!!!)

Here be yer Treasure Map! You can dig one square for 100 points, two squares for 200 points, and so on! If you want to save your points to the end of the week, you can! But you should write your Monkee Business Journal post for the points that day. If you miss a day, you miss those points. So make sure you try hard to not forget! Do your Best! Have Fun! and.....

*"Monkee Moms" (and dads and grandmom and so on!), help your Monkee choose their coordinates. In the comments below, state: Hi @strongtower! I have X points, and I will choose "A1" as my dig!" Please be sure to look at the map to see if it's still available, and check the comments to make sure it hasn't been chosen today. Tomorrow will be an updated map with all the previous digs "dug out". *
