Letters pour in for Edna

Uninvited Brits to Queen’s birthday bash feel slighted

Letters pour in for Edna

Dear Editor:
News of the misadventures of Ms. Edna Gosling has reached half way around the world, to Chicago, where I am enjoying a few weeks respite from the rigors of life in Chiang Mai. I read in the ChiangMai Mail that Tabatha, the 16 year-old virgin daughter of Khunying Edna, has established a liaison with a dried-squid salesman. I highly disapprove of this pairing.
As you know, the oceans are becoming increasingly over-fished, and if present trends continue, there will, in just a few more years, be insufficient to meet the demand for squid of the Thai population — not to mention the equally voracious requirement of the Philippines, Taiwan, and China. I fear if Tabatha persists in this silly notion of hers, that she will soon find herself associated with a member of the unemployed, or worse yet, a seller lurking in the byways of our city of those disgusting French-fried insects.
Or even worse yet — a thought that could not possibly have escaped the prolific imagination of Tabatha’s dear mother, Edna — that the unemployed dried-squid salesman might offer lovely and innocent Tabatha as a prize in exchange for that which keeps body and soul together. How many fathers and husbands in similar dire straits have offered up their wives and children to work in the fleshpots of Bangkok or Chiang Mai, or even Paris or New York, is beyond my ability to calculate.
If you have any sort of direct link into the home of this dear lady and her daughter, I urge you to convey them to the sanctuary of the house of God, where Edna’s deceased husband had direct conversations with the Lord, to explore the possibility of putting dear Tabatha in the personal care of the man of God now residing there, thus assuring her of some degree of protection from the lusts and desires of the hordes of men (like that awful dried-squid salesman) who are trying to gain access to her most secret of places.
May the Lord help and preserve you in your effort to save this innocent soul. If you are successful, you surely will gain another star in your own crown.
Very truly yours,
Frank Wheby


Uninvited Brits to Queen’s birthday bash feel slighted

Dear Sir,
I feel it my duty to bring to the attention of the British consul in Chiang Mai a rising mood of resentment among long-time British residents at the cavalier way he is organizing the annual party to celebrate our Queen’s birthday. A picture-spread in the Chiangmai Mail confirms that the majorities of those at the party were not British and bear our monarch no allegiance and probably little affection. I emphasize, Queen Elizabeth is OUR monarch, and an increasing number of her subjects in Chiang Mai feel slighted at not being invited by their consular representative to celebrate her birthday at what looked suspiciously like a private party presumably financed by British taxpayers. The current consul has nearly a year to put the matter right. He has at his disposal a list of registered British residents in Chiang Mai. There can’t be that many—certainly not many more than the non-British guests and personal friends at his party.
To avoid any suspicion that I want to be on next year’s guest list I must request a nom-de-plume!
Long-time British resident of Chiang Mai
