Dragon Driver

After I wished my Chinese-Thai taxi driver Happy 2013, he reminded me that Chinese New Year is February 10th and that this is still Dragon year. He also mentioned that he was born under this sign which explains the handblown glass knickknack in the form of a dragon on his dashboard. Then he proceeded to describe in detail all of his personality traits that he attributes to the year in which he was born. Considering that Dragons tend to have a big ego and like to be the center of attention, I shouldn't have been surprised that he wanted to talk about himself the entire time I was in his cab.
