Bitter-Sweet Goodbyes

Just before leaving home and beginning her collegiate career at the University of California, Berkeley, Sheel “Ceo” Chitalia delivers a crushing right palm to Bob’s face—per his request—before she, in return, gives him a departing thank-you kiss for all the abuse, pain, and crushing karate blows she delivered to him in the last four years. Frankly, Sheel and Bob have had a special relationship. Whenever Ceo would do “Bobwork,” her eyes, face and smile would light up like a Fourth of July fireworks display. No one in the history of the KIA has ever loved striking a dummy more than this beautiful Indian-American tigress. So, look out world, Ms. Chitalia is knockin’ at your door!
