Monkey Business

This guy was eating mangoes in the tree next to my house. I popped out into the courtyard when I heard the normally polite and reserved Mrs. Mittal making loud hooting noises, only to be confronted by a monkey perched on an overloaded branch with a mango in one hand looking like some perverse and unsatiated demi-god. Sensing our surprise and consternation, he hopped onto the pavement and ambled toward Mrs. Mittal, still clutching the half-eaten mango. We bluff-charged the monkey, and it ran away. Then the monkey bluff-charged us, and we ran away. Victorious, he hopped onto the courtyard wall and sat there looking pleased with himself. At this point, Mr Mittal came out of the house looking very fierce for someone whom I knew had been sleeping on a sofa-bed not five minutes earlier, and began hurling rocks. Mr. Monkey decided to call it a day and disappeared over the rooftops, looking for all the wold like a character from the simian version of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
