There I was, waiting for the promised "one-every-5-minutes" Oslo city tram to take me east of the Aker River, cold and depressed at 3. 30 pm this dark & rainy December evening.
Eventually, one comes by, we all squeeze on, shaking umbrellas & hair, when I hear this lady behind me on her cell phone (I swear!):
"So OK, darling, tonight let's fire up the barbeque..."
I laughed out loud.
As no one else did, I guess I misheard.
Wonder what she was really saying?
?? "Now stop that snarling, that's right, you're fired! Join the jobless queue!"
?? "Oh, don't cry, darling, tonight let's hire "It's a Good Life"...Oooh!"
