Grumpy, sour in Norwegian..

1 Comment

Sometimes I wonder about the Norwegians if they only got one state of mind?

The standard accusation word if someone is not smiling widely all the time is “grumpy” or “sour”, and that is if you are not widely smiling for what ever reason even if you are in a good mood. Like today. Last night I did not get any sleep before 0400 in the morning, so when the carpenter came knocking at my door at 1000 I was so tired my eyes drooped to my knees. My hair was a mess and I had not even had breakfast. You know the state of mind when you long for food and a slow wake up in the morning, but still in a calm and good mood… Landlord also came by so I left them alone to tidy up the kitchen and make myself breakfast so my morning would have a better start. I was not in a bad mood at all, just very tired. When I left the room I overheard the carpenter say: “-Is she always that grumpy?” while my landlord replied “-NOOOOO! She is very nice and tidy.”

I have heard it before at times when I for an example have worked for 10 hours and long for sleep being tired as an old boot but still in a good mood, or when one is thirsty and hungry after working 5 hours waiting for being able to get lunch, or in bad need of going to the toilet but still in a good mood. Sometimes stressed out at work, being late because of traffic jams and such. Such times one try to smile, even though one is in a good mood stress, hunger, needyness shows in ones face. Those times you might hear the accusation “grumpy” or “sour”. 

All people are human. No one have the best day of their lives every day 24/7. Sometimes one is needy for a toilet, food, sleep or whatever. And really, how do you look like when you need any of those even if you try to smile? I have heard others complain about this a lot too, so it is not only me.

I just wonder if those Norwegians do not think longer than their noses reach?

Dear Norwegians, do you only got one state of mind?

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
