    Oh, I've tried it here & there, learned to say it in a dozen languages or thereabouts, from Thailand in the East to Egypt in the South to Russia in the North. In Finnish, we simply share a murderous gaze and grumble a few curses.

    Oh do share! Say it in all the dozen or so.

    I can see you have a great affinity to the Finnish.

    Куда пернул, старый пердун? Vafan vill du då? Dritt! Yokohamahumahuta? Hvadfanden?!? Avec ou non? As-salaamu aleikum! Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän! Mai mai mai mai mai (Thai). Nil humanum humanum puto.

    That good enough?

    Asalaamu aleikum doesnt really count.

    I like mai mai mai mai mai. I'm going to start saying it. And when my daughter asks me why I called her Mai I'll tell her I wanted to welcome you in thai.

    Please don't try the Russian, or the Swedish either for that matter. Better leave the Norwegian alone as well, come to think of it. You could try the Danish, though the Danish are increasingly not understanding each other, never mind foreigners.

    Mai mai mai mai mai is very nice indeed, but better not use it when meeting strangers. Especially if one, such as myself, hasn't quite got the hang of the Thai tones.

    Is there nothing foolproof for a simple minded girl like me?

    A pair of tweezers? Foolproof for what?

    A foreign phrase of course! Have you fallen asleep already?

    Only my left brain, the other one is still dragging along somehow.

    Ah, you want niceties in various languages! I'll dispense with Finnish, we never use them anyway; but here's a really neat tidbit.
    "Spry!" is Gutnish for "hello!". Very handy, and I'm not pulling your leg this time.

    I love picking your brain. Who knows such random tidbits? And this is one half a brain.

    I speak a bit of Gutnish y'know, they've got some lovely songs. Precisely the kind of thing you'll never have any opportunity whatsoever to bring up in any conversation.

    Trust me. I will find a way to introduce it into a conversation. The way you just did.

    Death by laughter at 2.06am is an irresponsible thing to do. The responsible thing to do is to wait until the night shift is over and kick the bucket when the day shift is freshly in and looking at a new day, new challenges!

    It's easy enough in writing, but try singing the song IRL and see how you do.

    At least I'll die with a smile on my face. Wanna write me my eulogy?

    I'll give you 6-8-6, matching the number of rounds you made around ze sun:


    She couldn't spell a thing
    ah well, at least her wit was sharp
    still laughing in her grave.
