Those Crazy Danes or Dianes?

Before we got our swanky new kitchen (you do remember our kitchen remodel at the end of last year, don’t you…all three months of it?) – at which point my entire collection of kitsch fridge magnets were henceforth banished to a sedate, lonely life on the door of the ancient extra fridge in the basement – I used to have this on permanent display in the kitchen…

It was given to me by my good friend P. He couldn’t believe his eyes when he discovered it in a little shop in, if my memory serves me right, the US of A. Must have been Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe? Goodness knows what American fridge magnet makers have against the Danes – or Danish spouses to be exact? πŸ˜‰ Anyway, P felt, naturally, that it was his duty to buy it for me.

And I was happy to display it. It certainly gave me a good ‘tee-hee’ everytime I spotted it πŸ™‚

Until one fine day when my Mum and Dad from Scotland were visiting us. Mum misread it as ‘Pray for me, I’m married to Diane’… Thanks, Mum.

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Gotta love a good fridge magnet! I've only got 2 in my collection so far, but they make me smile all the same πŸ˜€

  2. If I ever find a fridge magnet version of "I child-proofed my house but they still get in", I'll let you know! ;D

  3. Hahaha, I love your parents misreading.

    I think Danish husbands probably do need a 'Pray for me, I'm married to a foreigner' badge, t-shirt, bumper sticker…ooh, gap in the market!!!!

    My face fridge magnet is one that says: "You can't scare me, I have kids."


  4. I'm sure my Scot here would love one of those magnets – as he keeps telling me, what's wrong with the Danish society! πŸ˜‰

  5. Hi Babs! I have a sign that says "You can't scare me, I have children" hanging here in my office! Love it!! πŸ˜€

    Hi Vibeke! Thanks for popping in…funny that you're a Dane married to a Scot – the opposite of me! Already following your blog! πŸ™‚
