Re: The First World Problem Thread

Sometimes when i shop in coop or denner i mix paper shopping bag and my Prada bag when walking back home. So I catch myself wearing bright red paper denner bag on my forearm in front of me and my beautiful handbag almost hidden with my other hand straight along the body. It must look idiotic.

I do the same but at least I don't wear a Prada bag. Still funny, though.

Vivi Cafe, Eglisau
Where else would you find a cafe that closes at lunchtime (see foto).
I asked why and they said it was so the staff could get lunch (?)!

It feels like my ovaries are square-dancing.

It's late.

All the Apothekes are closed, and I'm out of Ibuprofen.
