Hey, oh hi, HI, how are you
I’ve moved. I live in Denmark now. I moved here because I got a job writing ads for a big global superbrand. It’s really fun.
I live in a small city in Jutland, the chunky bit of Denmark. There’s a beach. On hot summer days you can dip your feet in the North Sea.
I take the bus to work. The bus drives past fields with cows and horses and little houses, and little lakes with ducks, and a big international airport with airplanes.
Aarhus is a 45-minute train ride away.
I listen to audiobooks and podcasts because I get carsick if I try to read a paper book on the bus.
This morning I tried on the Goopfellas podcast, which is a spinoff of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop but for men.
In the first 20 seconds:
Male host #1: Hey man, do you do yoga?
Male host #2: I do bro-ga.
I switched it off and devoted the rest of my commute to wondering what it must be like to be a person who says things like that.
