I thought I would take a break from my very busy day to tell you what's been on my mind:
Police said a man in Malaysia shot his neighbor as she picked sapodilla fruit in his tree, thinking she was a monkey.
Yep, that's what's been on my mind since yesterday when I read about this. I have a lot of unanswered questions.
Where does Mr. Malaysia's anger at monkeys stem from?
Is sapodilla fruit really worth dragging the gun out, loading it, etc.?
Why was the neighbor in the tree?
Is the tree really so leafy that Mr. Malaysia couldn't see that the person rustling the leaves was much larger than a monkey? (oh dear, that makes me think of another question)
Is the neighbor an abnormally small woman?
Why doesn't the neighbor have her own sapodilla fruit tree?
Was the neighbor locked out of her house and starving to death?
See...pressing questions that will never be answered.
For my own peace of mind will you all be ever so careful when you're out in the neighbor's apple/apricot/plum/pear tree picking their fruit?
I'm guessing...and it might be a stretch...but I'm guessing that if you are picking your neighbor's zucchini you're probably safe.
If you need me, I'll be outside raking. Because I like to rake. And the sun is shining.
