2. “Monkey!” –a reoccurring call to look at a monkey or make each other laugh during trying times.
1. “If we turn on each other India wins”–Kris at Delhi international airport. We weren’t even starting to turn on each other, we were both just kinda crabby and annoyed with the airport BS. It was a pre-preemptive hilarious warning.
