I wasn’t really aware that there was another level past
the level of sweating, crying and my nose running like
My Isaan girlfriend told me that she has another experience and it happens after crying, and sweating and her nose running… she says that she begins to feel air coming out of or into her ears. She’s not sure which.
Did anyone else experience this?
I’ve eaten what has been some VERY spicy food in Isaan before. Regularly eaten it, as in daily… and yet I think I must be stopping before I reach this special and unique Thai experience.
I think my better judgement tells me to STOP when other Thais just keep going because they are still getting some pleasure out of continuing to eat the
spicy food. For me – the pleasure begins to be outweighed by the pain in my mouth, AND the snot running out my nose and the sweating.
The sweating is aggravating because if I’m eating at an outdoor restaurant in Isaan and it’s spring and HOT like the desert, AND I’m wearing polyester pants and long sleeve button down shirt and Thai for teaching – it can get pretty hot. There’s never enough tissue to take care of my nose fluids either.
So – usually I stop as I come creeping up on that point.
Thais’ just go for it!
Did you get it before?
