Thai Superpowers I wish I had.

Recommended Posts

As far as sleeping is concerned I haven't a problem, wooden settee, floor, ground etc. Wouldn't want to try on a bike or driving the car though, Ha!.

Yes, I sweat a bit but I never go out in shorts, vest etc. always wear long trousers and shirt so I guess I've become used to this over the years. I do sweat a lot during morning workout though but again this martial art style so I am fully clothed. Sometimes the weather page says 90% RH so yes we are going to sweat. But guys, don't forget there are race differences.

Stressed out? Rarely but I think Thais have the Mia pen rai syndrome down to a fine art, Ha!

Food sealed with lively elastic. Usually I have no problem getting the bands off, either by a simple pinch, where they unwrap with fury and end up several feet away, or by 'rolling' the band upward. Using the latter method I have to place the bag in a mug/bowl because the last time I tried it freehand the elastic band came off suddenly and although it was safely in my hand the bag and contents were on the floor, Ha! Wrapping the band around the bag I always seem to 'strangle' my finger.

Lord help me that I never have to worry about rubber bands in any shape or fashion.

11/ The ability to queue at a government hospital for hours on end patiently.

Shouldn't that be 'for hours on end out-patiently'?

The ability to order extra food in a restaurant by telepathy.

 

She orders for both of us, the food arrives - usually enough for 4 people, then without any obvious communication manages to order more rice, two extra dishes and some sticky rice with mango.

I would love the ability to have a one metre force field/exclusion zone around me, so when I am in Tesco Lotus I don't have to navigate around people with their heads in their mobile phones.

Agreed. Probably easier just to set your phaser to 'stun'.

3/ The ability to eat durian, frogs, grasshoppers, ant larvae and a range of other weird foodstuffs.

 

4/ The ability to converse on a phone for several hours with a friend.

 

5/ The ability to go shopping with a friend for 6 hours, and not buy anything.

 

6/ The ability to constipate themselves with sticky rice, then self-administer a herbal laxative to get mobile.

 

7/ The ability to socialise with complete strangers in 30 seconds flat.

 

8/ The ability to work under safety conditions which would give a Western health inspector apoplexy.

10/ The ability to borrow money and promise to repay it with great sincerity.

 

11/ The ability to queue at a government hospital for hours on end patiently.

Durian is delicious.  But it smells bad ONLY until you have eaten it twice, then it changes to.  "YUMMEE! Durian!"

Yes, that mystifies me as well. We'll order, then somehow 2 -3 extra dishes suddenly appear on top of what we have already ordered. Telepathy indeed.

 

I forgot the ability to buy lottery tickets with numbers corresponding to the age of a relative or neighbour who has died in the last week.
