For one reason or another [namely: jetlag and laziness, followed by some rushed mornings and then capped off by food poisoning (me) and a mancold (Whim)] the dishes have really piled up over the last few days.
Then this morning I ended up on the couch with a blanket at two am, followed closely by L. Suffice it to say, it wasn't shaping up to be a good morning, and the last thing I wanted to do was wash all those dishes.
Enter: my knight in shining armor. M cleaned up our exceptionally messy kitchen with nary a peep of complaint. Voluntarily! Just to be helpful. I tipped him 100 baht and it was probably the best money ever spent.
Do you think I could hire him to unpack the suitcases? (Yes, two of them are still on my bedroom floor. No comment.)
