This was one of the things that actually put me off a bit when I first arrived, but it is one of the things that either:
1) I have grown to love, or
2) It was really great all along, but I was too uptight to appreciate it.
The Danes are "CALL 'EM LIKE YOU SEE 'EM" Folks...and I appreciate that. Maybe it's an age thing.... I have mellowed out the last few years and realize life is too short to just tiptoe around things. And the more I discover this, the more I am convinced that my MoMo Fontenot would have gotten along JUST FINE in Denmark... she was indeed a "call 'em like you see 'em" lady!
This picture proves my point.
Is it a "throw pillow" or a "decorative pillow" or an "accent pillow"?? Why get all fancy... just call it like it is! And yes, this was an ACTUAL SIGN I took a picture of in downtown Herning last week!
(PS: "Puder" means pillows
and "Tilbud" means offer".)
