It's been one of those days. Sunny, sprinkling, raining, sunny. A long time ago the very esteemed Richie Benaud and Michael Holding were talking about rain showers and cricket of course. It was then I heard for the first time the term "a monkey's wedding", and it has stuck ever since. In Jamaica when the sun is shining and the rain is falling at the same time, they say: some monkeys somewhere are having a wedding. I think it's a cool theory and saying. And so whenever this happens it really puts a smile on my face and I feel instantly happy.

I think the Jamaicans must have been in contact with South Africans at some stage, because both in Zulu and South African English the term "A Monkeys wedding" is the common term for a Sunshower.
