Chapter 23

~Lollygag~

It’s been a whole 10 days since my our last posting of “As the Jungle Turns” but this was in the spirit of our next selected word….”Lollygag”!!
As you can tell, trying to fit a storyline with the selected words can be difficult as mentioned in previous chapters.  Lollygag was no different.  Pia and I were confused on how we would fit this word into our story.
When we last left out heroes, they were in the Forest of Endor and I began thinking of the old fairy tales that took place in the dark forests of Germany as told by the Brothers Grimm.  I mentioned to Pia that we should lollygag in Germany to which she selected Berlin.
Pia Langfeld- "Mary, Wayne and Mr. Sides arrived in Berlin via their "speeder bikes".  They needed to regroup and figure out their next steps...the regrouping however turned into some lollygagging."

At this point, we decided our team would also part ways with their guide, Mr. Sides.  We felt that since Mr Sides is so much into World War II and German military, we would leave him as the new curator of a museum dedicated to the weapons of the German Reich.
Pia Langfeld- 'Mr. Sides, the German history buff, was totally in his element in Berlin.  Mary and Wayne would have to continue their search for the Twins on their own.  Having friends in high places, Mr Sides did set up a connection with his agency at HQ by the former Checkpoint Charlie border crossing..."

While Pia decided to draw areas of Berlin such as the Brandenburg Bridge and Check Point Charlie, I decided to draw the Berlin Wall.  There was so much art references for the Berlin Wall that I had difficulty in deciding which wall to draw.  That’s when I stumbled on the art of Thierry Noir.
I wasn’t able to find the artist name however for reference.
I drew Mary as tourist with some personalized graffiti.
When I posted this draw on Instagram, I am assuming that the #BerlinWall hashtag must have grabbed the artist Theirry Noir’s attention because he liked and commented on my draw.

Jaime Leos- "Mary and Wayne wait for HQ to give them Intel on the whereabouts of the Twins.  Meanwhile, the two are lolly gagging in Berlin and taking a much needed break while visiting the Berlin Wall."

The next word in the Monkey Sidebars game was “Scandinavian”.  We would have to tie in the word with our story so we decided that our next contact would be known as “The Scandinavian.”  He would need to be a man who could locate the Twins using the latest technology.
Jaime Leos- "Wayne alerts Mary that the Twins have not been located!  Mary feels that their lolly gagging may have cost them their change at catching the Twins.  Their last chance to locate the villains is to find an ex-military/ex-spy simply known as "The Scandinavian".

Our next chapter will take us to “the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.”
Until we meet again in the halls of Valhalla….
