Scandinavian misnomers

danishD. is currently living in Copenhagen. She loves the Danes. “They are superior people…they eat lots of fruit.”

My generous employer gave us two options for breakfast this morning: apples and danishes. One high-fiber, one low-fiber. One rich in antioxidants, the other clotted with sugary frosting. One that Danes eat, and another only named after them.

I hungrily made my choice, polyphenols be damned. I apparently don’t have a drop of Danish blood in me.
