You missed it!

No, actually you didn’t really miss anything. Today’s lesson is going to be about this phrase, though.

You can say อดเลย//òd loei when you are joking with your friend that he/she didn’t have a chance to do something. For example:

มานะ: อยากดูเดี่ยวไมโครโฟนของโน้สอุดมนะ แต่ตั๋วขายหมดแล้วอะ
Maaná: Yàhk doo ‘Diào Microphone’ khŏrng Nose Udom ná tàe tua khaăi mòd láw à
Mana: I wanted to watch Nose Udom’s ‘Diao Microphone’ but tickets were sold out!

มานี: อดเลย
Maanee: òd loei
Manee: You missed it indeed.

Here I show more examples on how to use this word:

อด//òd + noun

อดอาหาร//òd ahhaăn = to fast (or abstain from food)
อดอาหาร ลดความอ้วน//òd ahhaăn lód khwaam ûan = to reduce the food intake in order to lose weight
อดใจ//òd jai = to refrain from wanting to do something
อดใจไม่อยู่//òd jai mâi yòo = cannot stop oneself from doing something
อดบุหรี่//òd bùrèe = to stop smoking

อด//òd + verb

อดกิน//òd kin = to miss having a chance to eat (something)

น้องกินขนมที่แม่ทำหมด ฉันก็เลยอดกิน
Nórng kin khànŏm thêe mâe tham mòd chăn kôr loei òd kin
My younger sibling finished all snacks that mother had prepared, that’s why I missed all those nice stuffs!

อดไป//òd pai = to miss having a chance to go (to somewhere)

ฉันต้องทำงาน ก็เลยอดไปดูหนังกับเพื่อน
Chăn tôrng tham ngaan kôr loei òd òrk pai doo năng kàb pheûan
I have to work, that’s why I missed watching a movie with friends.

อดนอน//òd norn = to miss having a chance to sleep

เขาอดนอนเมื่อคืนเพราะต้องดูแลแฟนที่กำลังไม่สบาย
