i was spending an evening alone in our weekend home in khao yoi, about 60km from cha-am. i went out to the little dusty food court and scored a rice dinner in a plastic bag. all food to go come in plastic bags. back at the house, i opened a bottle of wine, sat down on the couch, and ate my dinner off the coffee table. and then, while sipping wine and reading an article in the newspaper, i just dozed off.

i was awakened by the phone. it was pencil. she did not give me a chance to assure her that i was in the house alone or that i was not out whoring around in the village karaoke bars.

hello sweetheart, she said, i am calling to make sure that you go to bed because i am afraid that you are dozing off on the couch.

how in the hell does she do that? ok, so men came from monkeys, and i do believe that, but surely women came from something else that likely has more to do with witchcraft than monkeys. but i did get a good night's sleep, thanks to pencil. i know that because of the way i played 9 holes of golf the following morning at sawang. judge for yourself.

i have tried whoring around in karaoke bars but it was not as much fun as this round of golf. march is right around the corner and so it was hot out there but there was a nice breeze and if you sat in the shade it almost felt cold. it's a lovely time of year in khao yoi. the locals call it lom yen sabai or cool breeze.

incidentally, it is not easy to fall asleep in khao yoi because people driving past the mountain honk at a diety who is responsible for traffic accidents. honking at her is sort of like acknowledging her and that pleases her apparently and decreases the chances that the honker will become inolved in a traffic mis-hap.
