>Image via WikipediaA MOMENT of minor madness that surprised me saw the on-the-spot purchase of peas during my lunch break. Danes love peas. They eat them straight from the pod, bag upon bag of them. Parents give them to their kids here in the same way that parents in the UK placate their raging offspring with Big Macs (at least, that’s how I remember it).
So, for the princely sum of 20 dkk, which is about 20 British pence, I bought this cup for my afternoon snack.
I am eating them as I write this. See their green, fresh goodness. Enjoy the satisfying pop somewhat akin to squeezing a bulbous polyp of acne, as you burst the pod and break the still tethered peas from their umbilical cords. Yes, fresh, health vegetables.
They taste disgusting.
But I am still eating them.
Is this their power?
They are growing on me.
Help. What shall I do?
Next I’ll be eating carrots after lunch like my Danish colleagues – apparently they are an excellent, natural teeth-cleaner.
