So you most likely know the kids’ song “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”, well while I was at church, I learned “Head, Shoulders, Butt, Earwax”. Yep, you read it right. Butt….Earwax
I was so surprised, and to top it all off, it was taught/sung all while having a meal together.
Needless to say it was a day full of laughter and smiles.
Who says church is suppose to be boring?!? Here, every church is a new experience and full of new adventures around every corner.
This Sunday, they were teaching me the parts of the body in Thai (and I taught them some in English as well)
Random thought of the day: What I love about the Thai language is how they put smaller words together to make another word. Like “Water น้ำ+ Smells Good หอม=Perfume” or “Water น้ำ+ Fruit ผลไม้= Fruit juice” or “Car รถ+ Room โรง+Study เรียน=School Bus”
So what ‘combo’ of words makes ‘earwax’? poop ขี้+ear หู= earwax the same applies for the eye goop you get in the mornings poop ขี้ +eye ตา=eye goop
