Today on the podcast, we ask Erik to discuss the flavors of Midsommar – new potatoes, strawberries and pickled herring. And then we discuss how to get rid of those flavors with a bit of schnapps!

A few weeks ago, I scheduled a full body massage before a flight. I thought it would be relaxing.
What I didn’t factor in was how much preparation I would have to do so I could feel comfortable with someone massaging me.
I waited to take my shower until an hour before leaving so I could be fresh. But then I noticed that my feet were a bit dry. I didn’t want someone to have to touch my dry feet, so I put lotion on them. Turns out it was strawberry lotion so then my feet smelled like strawberries. You would think this would be a good thing, but you don’t want to take off your socks to have a strawberry smell coming from your foot when no one knows you put lotion on there. It just seems like I stepped in some old jam. So I tried to wash it off in the shower, but then the skin turned out to feel slimy and strange.
I hope I didn’t ruin the masseuse’s enjoyment of strawberries for the future.
