You Know You’re Scandi When…
Posted by Martina Wade |
You know you’re Scandi when..
You wouldn’t DREAM of drinking the water from the tap without letting it run for at least 5 seconds. Otherwise you end up with the ‘pipe-water’ that has been sitting there for hours. Eugh.
You automatically remove your shoes when you enter someone’s house.
You happily drink a glass of milk with breakfast, lunch and your evening meal (no, not dinner – the one after – kveldsmat/aftensmad).
You insist on having your sandwiches topless. Less bread, more delicious filling, what’s not to like?
You think 11.30am is an acceptable time to have lunch.
You hoard candles for autumn and winter and secretly can’t wait for the temp to drop so you can light all of them. Hygge!
You spend hours struggling with the correct level of politeness in emails. Scandinavians are direct – in spoken as well as written language. Pardon us whilst we work on our manners.
You still think it’s weird that milk comes in plastic bottles and not in cardboard.
You wonder where the crispbread section and tube cheese section in the supermarket is.
Your dream Friday night is staying in and relaxing in front of a film or TV show. Tacos for dinner, sweets and snacks after.
You own at least 3 pairs of knitted socks from your grandma.
You think liquorice, especially the very salty kind, is delicious. In chocolate, with ice cream, in vodka.
You own at least one weatherproof jacket.
