Question

In a screaming match between a monkey and a rooster, who wins?

Answer: Depends on the day. Most mornings in our neighborhood, the monkey (somebody’s pet?) knocks off about 6:45AM, while the roosters will sometimes pop off a couple of cockadoodledoos as late at 7:30AM. The monkey will sometimes start screaming again later in the morning, say 10:30, but to be fair I'm not sure we should count that as part of the contest, since the roosters are mostly inactive until the next morning. Mendy (who sleeps with ear plugs) says she saw a young kid carrying a baby chimp down our street the other day.

Would you ever throw your hat in the ring and start screaming too? with some practice you might just be competitive. the question then arises, would any of your neighbors say anything or just chalk it up to expat weirdness?

i think the neighbors wouldn't even notice. this AM there was a yelling match between what sounded like 6 or more women. no monkeys this morning, though.
