"Why didn't you bring home Thai food?" one of them asked. I know of a couple of Thai restaurants within a forty-five minute radius, but I don't know if you can get take-out from them.
"You wouldn't like it," I said. At some point I took an adult night school cooking class and learned how to make several Thai dishes, including Pad Thai and Tom Yum soup, but I lost the recipes. Also, I didn't have kaffir lime leaves or galangal around. You can get lemon grass at the local supermarket.
Dad and I watched the movie One for the Money, based on the Janet Evanovich book. I re-read the book afterwards to see how close it was. A lot was the same. I've read up through seventeen in the series.
