Young Vincent is being sent to the shops.  Seems the cupboard is bare.  His mother gives him a list of what she needs and off he goes carrying all of his best intentions.  He won't even stop to talk to his neighbor, Mr. Singh.  Vincent has a job to do.

Enter a gust of wind big enough to carry the list away.  Gone.  Can Vincent remember his list?  Let the giggling begin. Vincent's memory fails him... or does it?  

Suddenly the most mundane items: carrots, a box of rice, tasty cheese, a big firm pear, and a can of peas are transformed.  There's a feeling of fun and riotous giggling as Vincent does his best to get everything he can remember.  Welcome  to the beset errand ever!  

And that ladies and gentlemen is how the chimpanzees came to tea.
