it’s coronation day here in the kingdom of thailand. and seeing as how i’ve never, ever lived in one before, i find it way too cool to say i live in a kingdom. way too cool. probably cooler than it is.
what is coronation day, you ask? it’s the day when thais celebrate the coronation of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, which occured on may 5, 1950. that means he has been the king of thailand for 58 years – you can check my math if you want – making him the world’s longest-serving current head of state and the longest-serving monarch in thai history.
and, oh yeah, i live in a kingdom.
