I’ve heard a lot of hair comments over the years. Some weird, some stupid, some plain idiotic. But last week I heard an unexpected one…
Some girls in my class were talking about hair and one of them turns to me “Igor, you got to have some foreign blood, right?” (That line doesn’t translate well from Danish BTW. It sounds potentially offensive in English and it really wasn’t in Danish.)
I was pretty surprised because I have never had my well, Danish-nes, questioned before.
And I guess my answer of “Errh, well, I’m Danish with a bit of German and a tiny bit of Spanish blood” wasn’t exactly what she was expecting.
