My efforts to metamorphose into a 70-year-old Jewish woman living in Myrtle Beach is going as smoothly as such a metamorphosis could go.
It's a(nother) beautiful day in Chiang Mai, and I'm baking in my banana skin. I'd love to go for a swim, but I can't.
Why? Because I'm a 70-year-old Jewish woman living in Myrtle Beach, and when I went swimming in the pool a week ago, I got an awful [pron: ohr-ful] ear infection that still hasn't gone away and I don't want to risk it again. So I'm not going swimming, my ears can't handle it.
Next time: pictures of me in a floral-print muumuu. Also, puppies.
