    Songkran gift ideas?

    There are two Thai waitresses at a restaurant I frequent here in California.

    I would like to give them some present at Songkran time, something to help them feel (more) festive, and to show that I have some feelings for them.

    One is married, in her 30s, and we have "the hots" for each other. But it is doomed.

    The other is early 20s, single, and we share a common love of food. Except for her age, I would truly like to date her.


    So, what would be appropriate as a fun and thoughtfull gift for each?

    BTW, both have been in US only a few years, so culturally they are mostly still Thai.

    P.S. Truck for brother-in-law, operation for grandmother, medicine for sick buffalo, are the types of ideas I would prefer not to consider.

    zippy, a little package of fruit (if you can get thai fruits even better) is usually more than sufficient. Its the act of giving that counts.

    ^ thanks for the suggestion! You ARE getting helpful in your dotage

    They have access to Thai fruit at the restaurant, with the exception of durian, which probably would not elicit the response I would like.

    The cheeky (and horny) side of me is tempted to package together some kid's play paint and a couple of photos of body art, and then suggest that since Songkran in California does not provide the joys of color splashing, perhaps we ought to go back to my (or her) place and play with paint.

    But I think this is too forward at this stage. To tell the truth, I am scared if the offer is accepted. It's been a long time since I dated or had sex.

    You miss my meaning, here, read this one..... (not that i think your girls are 'bargirls' but i suspect the trick will work the same!)

    MS Thailand | Mangosteen Poker: The sexy bet you can't lose | Activities

    Mangosteen Poker: The sexy bet you can't lose


    Thai bar girls will gamble on just about anything so, to win a few sexual favours, you could lure them into a game of Mangosteen Poker. It's more fun than Strip Poker because, unlike playing cards, mangosteens are delicious and, more importantly, you can't lose.
    Like oranges, mangosteens contain a number of segments beneath a thick outer skin. They are perfect for gambling because this number always varies. In Mangosteen Poker, your bar girl adversary has to guess the number of segments before you break open the fruit but you have the distinct advantage of knowing the correct number beforehand.
    If she guesses right and you guess wrong (which only happens when you want it to), your girl wins 20 baht but, if she loses, she has to perform a forfeit - like flashing her tits, for example. If you both guess right or both guess wrong, no one wins and you just eat the fruit together.
    The more she loses, the naughtier the forfeits become so the latter stages of the game should be played in the privacy of your hotel room.

    Your Ad Here
    To win the bet, take a quick look at the base of the fruit. Here you will find a small brown appendage shaped like a cog-wheel. The number of teeth on it is the same as the number of segments inside. Hardly anyone knows this secret.
    What you can win is limited only by your imagination.

    I'm confused now. What's wrong with her age?

    Yeah, I keep hoping I will find a fortune cookie with that message inside. Then I can accept that it was destiny.

    Nothing per se, but it is unlikely that a woman that young will want to or be able to be a good stepmom.

    And perhaps it is unfair to women, but I am hoping to find someone who can be a good lifemate for me AND for my two young sons. Not really interested in just cheap, tawdry sex at this point.

    I'm of the opinion that if you think too much about how that special someone should be, you'll end up single for the rest of your life. If you happen to meet someone and the magic is there, just go for it. If it works out, then great; if not, then at least you've had a hot girlfriend for a while. No harm done.

    That's either genuinely sagacious advice (thank you)

    OR

    a trick to get me to post some pictures of her

    One of the nicest, most well-thought-out posts I've read.

    I was going to suggest bending her over the counter and sticking it in her arse, but I had second thoughts.

    So water pistols filled with colored ice water would be appropriate.

    Haven't been back there yet; generally go once a month.

    Since Songkran is Sun-Tues this year, not so easy to go because these are school nights for the boys; OTOH, kids might like going with water pistols! Have to see if they are open during the period.

    Don't quite know how I can get her to pose for a picture...and I am afraid some of you scallywags will claim that you "know" her

    That's the risk you've got to take, I'm afraid.
