Pad Thai & Circuses

One might make an argument that the fact that the only two white chicks surrounded by a sea of surly Asian men at a Muay Thai boxing match are both lawyers reinforces some ugly, ugly stereotypes. :D

Personally, I suggest America change its national sport from baseball to something a bit more ... contact-oriented. Speaking of contact, I forgot to mention that Buddhist monks are not allowed to touch women in any way whatsoever, even accidentally (... the book on the monastic rule for Buddhist seems to suggest that "accidental touches" are ok, as long as the touch was undesired and unintentioned. There, of course, you get to the question -- is a woman's touch *ever* undesired/unintentioned?!) I've been drawing a wide berth around the golden robed guys -- subjecting them to lengthy purification rituals on account of my clumsiness just doesn't seem fair. I was thinking, though -- a couple of slightly more mischieviously spirited girls could wreak serious havoc in one of these monasteries. All it takes is a simple little contest to see who can make contact with the greatest number of these men of Buddha -- let's call it "Monk Tag" (patent still pending ;)

I think you've come up with an intriguing form of evangelism. One group of women keeps the monks occupied, and while they are kept busy cleansing themselves, another group fills the religious gap with the Good News.

It would take good teamwork, but I think you could pull it off.

Can I suggest "Counting Guru" instead of monk tag?

Good thinking! Making use of every opportunity, just as Peter exhorts us ;)

Interestingly, almost every man in Thailand spends time in the priesthood -- anywhere from 7 days to 6 months for most men, and a lifetime for others. Employers apparently routinely give time off work for becoming a (temporary) monk. The idea is for as many men as possible to experience the renunciation being a monk requires. Not a bad idea, methinks.
