    Am I full of shit?

    I'm wearing one those strings on my wrist that you get from the local wat and since I've been home people left and right have been asking me what the hell it is.

    Random Friend: What's that?

    Me: It's a blessing string. I got it in Thailand.

    RF: Looks gay, what's it for?

    Me: I got it at a temple in Phuket. You see, you make a wish and the monk will say a blessing and put this string on your wrist. If your wish comes true then you cut it off and go back to the temple and make a donation. Also it's custom to make a donation right after you get your blessing.

    RF: Oh yeah, how long you had it then?

    Me: About a year and a half.

    RF: Dude, that's gay!



    So, 2 questions: Is my explanation a load of crap? And should I drop all my friends who call me "dude" and use "gay" as an epithet?

    You wore that gnarly string on your wrist for a year and a half?

    I've been told three days is the minimum. More than a week it's just grungy.

    It should either be removed after 3 days or left on until it falls off itself.

    If you have washed your nuts, cock or ass with the hand which the string is on then you might aswel cut it off now as it has lost any blessing it recieved.

    *Cut the string off, not cock.

    Yeh, sometimes Mrs puts one on me for some reason, like when she's been to a Wat. They last four days to a week on me, but obviously no one bats an eyelid around here.

    You're an arrogant attention seeking ****.

    I used to be like that when I wore a "love the King" sweatband during football games, I didn't really mean it, I just wanted people to make comments on it. (I do think the King is a good bloke by the way)

    I have never been to a temple and been blessed or anything like that. The string I always end up with is from family in the village.

    3 days to show respect and then cut it off I have been told.

    1.5 years? :vomit: :sick: (what the hell is that smiley called?) Thanks KW

    My girlfriend made me wear one after I shagged her mate, her mate cast some issarn spell on me and it was to protect me from that, me, I just thought she was right horny and wanted to shag her, still it kept the girlfriend happy after the curse was lifted, I only wanted to shag her the one time though.

    Wear it until it falls off; I've had two, one from Japan and one from that hilltop temple in Hua Hin and I've certainly survived some rather close calls during that time... My ex-wife in Japan told me after it's done protecting you it will fall off.

    I once unexpectadly ended up with some string in my mouth.

    It was just as well, cos I stopped what I was doing there and then. The broad hadn't told me she was having her period.

    A shag during time, fine, but oral...
    i dunno what she had in mind, and didn't stick around to find out.

    its true, my missus is always warning me to be careful of various girls and the magic they might cast on us.

    My mates maid was complaining to him that the new girlfriend had obviously cast a spell on him, right before he sacked her!
