relocated to monkey heaven

My college roommate Sharkay spent an exchange year in Delhi, where she was mugged walking down The Street of the Monkeys. Mind you, she was carrying a bunch of bananas and a newspaper in one hand, and eating a banana with the other; so she was fully loaded and distracted when her attacker made his move and divested her of all three items. She now hates monkeys as much as she does squirrels, and with more reason. I can't tell either story nearly as well as she does, and I have a lot of other writing to do tonight, so I'll just point you at the article that made me think of her.

Apparently it's all very funny until it happens to you.
