coup de grace

I was sitting in a cab today with all my shopping, stuck in traffic. It would have been faster to walk, but these days it’s about 7 million degrees outside at high noon, enough to get heat stroke in 3 minutes, enough to feel a swoon as you wait 1 minute in the sun for a taxi to drive by.

The radio was on, and it said [blah blah blah military coup blah blah] — and it struck me how strange it is that I know about 300 words in Thai, little more than a child would know, and “military coup” is one of them.
