The Water Cooler!

At the water cooler this morning, I had a chat with one of my Kim coworkers. 

It seems that the government is asking people to limit their travel during the upcoming New Year's holiday due to fears of spreading foot and mouth disease.

He's as pleased as punch.  He hates driving during the holidays, as most sane people would.  The roads become insanely congested, and a one hour trip can easily become a three to four hour hell ride. 

He usually jumps on any legitimate reason to avoid making the trek to the south.  Two years ago he thought he had a good one with the birth of his youngest child, but what in fact happened was that a slew of relatives showed up at his place instead. 

Listening to him rant about that was hilarious, although I completely sympathized as well.

So this year he's going to take a page out of my book and go to Bangkok, i.e. stay home and become a vegetable.  Life's looking pretty sparkling to him right now.
