The antics of my friend BauBau (bow-bow) as I call her

I had to share this today ...I will start by saying that I give my friend Bauban (bow-bon) kudos ..She was born and raised in Thailand ,got married at sixteen by way of arranged marriage thanks to her father .I am not sure how customary this kind of thing is but I would venture to say probably pretty .She doesn't seem to act like it was something out of the ordinary .Anyway her dad arranged for her to marry one of his brothers friends .She did and has been married since .She is now in her mid thirties with two beautiful teenage daughters .The thing I give her kudos for is not knowing anyone( including her new husband really ) ,not knowing how to speak a bit of english .I am not real sure if she understood it ..Seems she would have almost had to to a degree and coming over here to America ,learning english ,becoming a pretty independant and very hard working woman .She is one of my fellow hourly supervisors ...Anyway I love her to death and she is so funny .She is one of the women that I take breaks and eat lunch with regularly at work ( there are four of us ) .Well being from Thailand she is... how would you say ...a little naive to our culture still, but very curious at the same time which I can totally understand ..I would be to if the situation were reversed .She learned English and speaks it quite fluently but still has a very strong accent .Ok so know that you know the background and know that I love this girl to pieces on with making fun of her ...lol

Today at lunch we are discussing the tinfoil trick from the previous post ..My friend Nicole and I are crackin up about it and Bauban gets this puzzled look on her face and asks me in almost a whisper " Do you hum close or far away "Well I about spit out my drink with that one ...lol I said to her you put him in your mouth and hum ...You ought to have seen her eyes ...lmao They got huge like OMG no way .Well Nicole lost it too and started saying "yeah you just foil him up Bauban and leave him laying in bed while you go mow the lawn and hum ...but come back once in ahwile and see if he is hot yet ...lmao " Well we all started laughing so hard we were crying .Then I asked if anyone had any black pepper for my tuna and Bauban says .." You like spicy food? You would like Thai food if you like spicy food "I explained to her that I like black pepper and food with spices like garlic and such but not HOT spicy food .I told her I had always wanted to try a Thai resturant but never have ..I asked if they do the cream cheese wontons that I love so much and she says " I not Vietnamese I am from Thailand ." I was like I never said you were ..lol She said well I do not know what a wonton is they sound Vietnamese to me she said .I explained to her that I am American and I know what they are and was not implying that she should just know this because she is Asian ..lol Anyway we laughed it off and Nicole's brother says "I wonder what kind of food they eat in Thailand" and giigles and says "how are there hot dogs in thailand "..laughing because he said" I am sure they probably do not eat hotdogs there" ..Bauban says "Vietnamese eat dog not Thai" ...lmao Well we had to explain that a hot dog is Not made from dog ...lmao Needless to say she had us crackin up the whole lunch hour ..She is a roit .

  5. Great look and very funny stuff. On your last post I just want you to know I ran out and bought 250 yards of tin foil. Now I'm afraid my wife is going to wrap it around my head when I'm asleep.
