I dropped by one of my go to late night Thai spots and ordered a steamy to-go box of Pad Kee Mao which is basically flat rice noodles stir fried with ground meat, garlic, green beans and thai basil. Yeah, it's way tasty! The girl who took my order asked and I said "spicy." When you say spicy here, they don't play! I took a large bite and "kapow!" I'd just been leveled by a case of debilitating spice induced hiccups. It happens sometimes when I eat the super spicy stuffs. They come fast and loud and makes talking a little bit difficult. Needless to say I'd rather I didn't have to share this odd little trait of mine with anybody. However, if there is someone I'm completely comfortable with sharing this quirk it's Steph and there she was sitting there minding her own business when I started going to town. The look on her face was more in the vein of scientific curiosity than pity. You have to appreciate her candor. The hiccups soon subsided but not to be out done, my nose started running like a bastard. On this night ye spice gods were offended. It was still a tasty heap of noodles though.
The Spice must flow....................Just not from our arses.
