Thai girls like to chop their hair off after a nasty breakup…while adopting menacing poses and eating particularly spicy food. I guess that’s one way of washing that man right out of your hair. Maybe they saw ‘South Pacific’ one too many times, or ‘Splendor in the Grass,’ but I doubt it. It may be instinctual, but probably more like an act of Buddhist renunciation…cleansing…renewal… cop-out. Speaking of which… When a prominent Thai politician’s son shot a policeman in the head in a crowded bar, after 6 months on the run he entered the temple, instead of jail…not guilty…Buddhist justice. Me, I like to shave my head when the weather turns hot, once a year, spring cleaning, no big deal if you’re ‘balding’ anyway… :-) Aaahhh, that feels good…
