The staff of Viet-Thai, local restaurant and dominant force in spring rolls for years now, have gone on vacation. The lady and I found this out when we called to place an order for take out the very first day they were shut down.

That led her to develop the following phrase, which we can all put to good use, I’m sure:

Viet-Thaiming. Noun. The choice, judgment, or control of when to go to Viet-Thai and not catch them while they’re on vacation. I couldn’t order our usual #44s; our Viet-Thaiming was off.

Use accordingly.
