NOT ACCEPTABLE!

Some friends and I went to a restaurant here in Stockholm the other night and ordered a margarita. These are the margaritas we received. Fork and eyeglasses for scale.

Let me show you the average margarita in the U.S. Now THIS is how a margarita should be!

And by the way, what’s up with the burnt, blackened limes they put in the Swedish margaritas? This is the second time this has happened at 2 different places. Did they just shrivel up because it’s winter?

Coffee Cow

A few summers ago as we were relaxing at a Swedish “beach,” a man came around wearing a white backpack with black spots and a hose attached.  He was “THE COFFEE COW.”  His special backpack was full of coffee and he would fill you up right there on the beach for a low price.  My husband thought this was the most genius idea he had ever seen.

However, you have to understand that:

1. Swedes are crazy about coffee.

2. For some reason, coffee at the “beach” just works here.

The reason this is on my mind is because I saw a girl yesterday morning doing the same thing at the subway station.  Now THAT’s a genius idea!  In my opinion, it fits better than at the beach.

Coffee Cow wouldn’t go over well on Gulf Coast beaches where I come from.

But a Margarita Cow?  Now you’re talking.
