going in to a hip new thai restaurant for the first time

i remember saying "thai hot" and eating a salad with ginger dressing before the event

apparently the word thai is key here (if she would have used words like "10x" or "molten" or "surface of the sun" hot, i would have had a clue)

i thought it was odd, but didn't put two and two together when the food runner (delivering my dish) was suited up like he was handling nuclear waste

and isn't it funny that there's a universal sign language when humans are in food shock/distress from such things

flailing arms, fanning your face (like that's going to help), eyes streaming tears, schnozz opened like a faucet, profuse sweating, etc.

lesson learned

And the whole hobbyist thing of collecting QRL cards never made sense to me. I earned my nerd cred other ways.

I had a Heathkit set of parts and a big lego board that you'd put different diodes and whatnot into these blocks that you could put onto the board, then connect with jumper wires to make different things. For a while I knew what all those things did.
 
Later I got a 10-band shortwave receiver, and was going to get into ham but I couldn't ever get the hang of morse code (the plug & play set had a key). The receiver was cool but you had to fine-tune it by finding a local ham guy to broadcast a tone at a known frequency etc etc and I never did that so the thing was really hit and miss. Plus we didn't have tall trees in the neighborhood back then so my antenna wire was only about 10 feet off the ground.

But I could pull in Voice of America broadcasts, I think Radio Marti, and other probably pro-Commie propaganda stations with some pretty exotic music. And disco. Lots of Eurodisco.
