You Know You'Re Becoming A Local When...

Recommended Posts

1. You put chicken feet bones on the table (not on your plate).

2. You can't do number two without the spray thingy.

3. When you start thinking that Farangs are nothing but a bunch of whiners.

1. you chew up the little splinters of chicken and pork bone in your food because you couldn't be bothered picking them out.

I used to pick all the little pieces of bone out, but now often find myself just chewing and swallowing them because it is too much effort to pick them all out.

<deleted> is with that anyway? Do they use a 10 lb sledge to cut it up with? Or perhaps a bowling ball? When I first arrived here I swore the mother-in-law ran any chicken used in any recipe calling for it, through a chipper first. After the first bone piece implantation in the roof of your mouth or somewhere along the gum line, you learn to s-l-o-w d-o-w-n eating. It was like eating in a mine field at first. Maybe it is a form of culturally induced fiber in the diet? I guess since they are mostly lactose intolerant, then eat your calcium by swallowing bone pieces, eh? Pom mai rue. pg

Instead of slowing down and let the on coming Thai driver pass you because there is a bicycle rider on the left shoulder, a motor cycle rider overtaking the bicycle rider, a farm vehicle on the other shoulder, you resort to threading the needle driving antics...just like a lot of the locals do. tsk, tsk, tsk ett

Someone ruins decent scotch by pouring lots of nam soda on it and your reaction is, "That looks refreshing."

Oh isn't that the truth...and also, without missing a step, without slowing down at all....step out of your shoes at the doorway and never even think about it. ett

You think It's normal to scrape your feet along the ground without lifting them up when you walk.

You overtake someone who is slowing down for a red light because they are in front of you, even though you need to stop at the same red.

Your threshold for rejecting food or drink, because there is a bug on it, is no longer at one bug.

You are further gone if the addition of bugs has become a feature rather than a problem.

You know how to play Bok Deng AND how to score plus you can sit on the ground Thai style for hours.

How about....ingesting some unknown piece of something or other that is in the soup like dish they have served, dissolving it in your mouth and then tactfully take each piece of bone that came with it, out of your mouth and place it either on the very large serving tray or just right on the table. I have gotten to the point where I don't bother trying to tear it apart with my fork/spoon, fingers, etc....just work it around and let the enzymes in the old saliva do its thing. Uh-huh! PP
