My dad is in Bangkok, Thailand. He just said on the phone that there was another bomb attack and 2 police officers were killed. I thought that thing was all over. I don't hear anything about it on the news here. Maybe it's because I don't watch the news or read the paper or getting any kind of info about what's happening in the world. I have to do something about it. I'm looking for a good news podcast.
Anyway, my dad told my something interesting the other day. The soldiers that are walking around Bangkok are "water melons." This is because they wear green military wear but they are really one of the red shirts. I just thought the expression is accurate.
