Monkey Business

By Chowdapa

Five of us - ravi,RD,malik,sheetad and i , had gone to CP one day ..we had a great time just chatting and "sight seeing" and window shopping ..it was more fun because we had been treated buy sheetad at mcdonalds for sum reason..now the reason isnt important coz when the majority decides on making 1 person the "spender", reasons arent important ..anyways , after the FREE hearty meal , we were walking outside , going to cross the road , when we saw a bunch of foreigners , all girls and with great dressing sense ;) ..they were looking at us, from the other side of the street, 5 boys, making a ruckus. i guess crossing a road by just waving ur hand at the vehicles , to stop , would be illegal in the country from where the foreigners had come from coz they were staring at us wide eyed.i guess its called jay walking or sumthing .anyways ,all of us saw them stare , and we were basking in the attention ..we had crossed the road , a 5 foot railing was the only obstacle between us and them ..ravi , being the most athletic and flexible , put one hand on the railing and lifted himsself up and twisted his body , landing on the other side like a cat ..next it was my turn , i put both hands on the railing , lifted myself up and landed on the other side, not like a cat , but quite elegantly ..the foreigners looked impressed..i guess showing off , especially when u are getting the attention of females, is in our genes ..it was RD's turn now, he had to top it , he had to do sumthing so mind numbingly athletic , that the foreigners would just flock to him cooing " ohhh RDeee" ..with these thoughts in mind , he aggressively attacked the railing, his gaze , fixed on the prettiest gal of the lot , put his big hands on the railing and jumped off the ground..but one flaw , as u mite have guessed it ,was his gaze , shouldnt have been on the gal , instead it should have been on the railing , to see if his feet clear the railing properly .
.his foot got stuck in between the railing , while the other went to the other side of the railing ..his body went up in the air , one foot on one side , the other foot on the other , it seemed to me and ravi , as if the world is going in slow motion, and then he came crashing down ..just to give u a good idea , if u have ridden a bicycle , a boy's bicycle , u would have seen a rod in the front ..imagine falling on the rod , with each leg on each side ..OUCHHHH ..well, RD roars , so he roared!!

everyone was staring wide eyed , but the show wasnt over yet ..since his hands are so big and strong , he dint lose grip ..he was still holding on to the railing , his body slid to one side , and finally he was hanging on to the railing , upside down..his hands holding on , his legs wrapped around the railing ..if you have ever seen animal planet, where they show chimpanzees and monkeys in the forest , they almost always show a baby monkey , hanging upside down , its legs wrapped around a branch and its hands or watever , holding on to the branch..RD looked looked just like that, just not as small as a baby monkey ..Ravi and i looked at each other and shrugged , RD was still in that position when the "prettiest gal" , who was holding her digital camera in her hands , clicked a pic of RD swinging wildly on the railing , trying to get his balance back , and the foreighners left, laughing so hard ..seeing this , sheetad did a very intelligent and commendable thing indeed , he walked a few feet along the railing , and there was a gap there..he walked throught it and joined us ..RD bought the yellow pages so he could look at the numbers of adoption agencies for future reference ..:) ..
