Keeping a Straight Face in the Land of Smiles

Yes, name your restaurant/inn after your impressive nickname!


One of the joys of teaching in Thailand...

How do you keep a straight face when you're calling roll, using students' nicknames with the likes of...

Beer (girl)
Golf
Dung
Dong
Poo
Moo
Rat
Prim (guy)
Air

And one first name I was never able to negotiate without a blush: Terdsak

Yes, self-discipline of one's facial muscles is a primary requisite for a foreigner teaching in the Land of Smiles.
