When a stranger on the street smiles at you, you assume:
-He is drunk
-He is insane
-He’s an American
Silence is fun.
The reason you take the ferry to Denmark is:
-Duty free vodka
-Duty free beer
To party hearty… no need to get off the boat in Copenhagen, just turn around and do it again on the way back to Norway.

“No comment” becomes a conversation strategy.
You know you have been living in Norway… You use “mmmm” as a conversation filler. You have been engaged for four years and don’t have any plans to get married. Your wardrobe now consists of 20 different shades of black and grey. It seems reasonable that no business can be conducted on Friday afternoons (or the entire month of July). You expect to find the glove you dropped in February hanging on a post in June. Candles are a permanent fixture on your weekly shopping list. You start to differentiate on types of snow. You assume that everyone who apologizes after bumping into you is a tourist.
