Bottoms up


Dear Hillary,

I thought the most used saying in Thai was “Have you eaten yet?” I have recently spent some time in Bangkok Hospital Pattaya, and the most used phrase is when the nurse needs to change your sheets, she casually says “Up you bum.”



Dear Bryan,

Ooh, aren’t you the lucky one! There’s a fair percentage of people round town waiting for an invitation like that. However, on behalf of all the hard working nurses everywhere, I’m sure what she wanted you to do was raise your hips!
