Seriously Happy

In Thailand, being solemn is a cause for concern. A Thai phrase you often hear basically means, "don't be so serious". In the taxi the other day, I wanted to express that same sentiment to my pensive-looking cabbie, but I changed my mind as I thought he might not appreciate my unsolicited advice. Instead, I dropped an indirect hint and told him his fish made out of money looked happy.
