March 1 is the first day of spring, in Denmark. Seen from a calender view of course, but the weather has been fine and mild the past days, so perhaps the heavy winter clothes can be put away before too long. (It´s never time for removing light winter clothes in this country!)
The photo was taken some weeks ago, not today. Like many others, I too got sick and had to stay inside for a while. When I was a child, my mother used to buy a “Donald Duck” for me in such a situation. That was the time when we celebrated things by sharing a soda, my mother, me and my 4 siblings, – and there would still be something left for later. My mother was very good at pressing the metal cap back on, I can still imagine the little click.
Perhaps you have a little doubt about the number of soda and drinkers? I´ll give you that my youngest sister actually hadn´t been born yet, as she is 12 years younger than me, and my other sister probably was so much baby, that we could share a soda without her knowing about it, but I garantee you that my brothers was on the spot if they heard that cap being removed.
Well, back to Donald Duck, I really should have bought the latest number, just as I was considering when we stood face to face last week at the super market. I think it would have made me well faster, on second thoughts it probably would have been a problem convincing my husband that he had to read it all loud to me.
Some matters are just too complicated to explain.
One very festive day, I will buy both a soda and a Donald Duck. I think spring could come up with such a day.
