Got your attention, didn't I?
Yes indeedy, from what I'm hearing on the news, there are few among us who could NOT use a tropical getaway just about now. Except perhaps those who live in the tropics, that is.
And who really CARES about them?
Not me, let me tell you.
The Grand Poobahs at The Order of The Opus Gluei have designated their Challenge #85 as "Needing a Tropical Getaway". Aren't they sweet?
So I said to myself, "Self? What the heck are you going to do about this?" And myself said, "Hey! We were just perusing (I had to look that up and make sure it wasn't just a word I made up in my own head) those pics from Thailand the other night and I know EXACTLY what to use!!"
OK, a little background.
A few years ago, my girl and I spent almost a month in Thailand. We started in the south and made our way up to the north and the food got weirder as time went on. There are WAY less tourists in the north, in fact in one town, they had never seen a couple of blonde women before. Yes, Virginia, I used to be blonde. Natural, I might add. Never mind about that. Anyhoo, as we neared the end of our adventure, both of us were yearning for good old familiar North American food. I should add here that the day after we landed in Bangkok, we went to a mall and learned that Mcdonald's burgers are made of rice there,
KFC puts corn in their ice cream,
and Pizza Hut offers Sushi Pizza.
Say no more.
The look on my daughter's face pretty much says it all. We were in the middle of the jungle and if I remember correctly, neither one of us believed we were going to last much longer.
That's my story for this LO. It's the honest-to-goodness truth.
And I feel so much warmer just thinking about it.
