The story about the kitten



Johan is a natural blonde and in the summer his hair turns brighter, so of course, after a week in Turkey, it was even more blonde. Nothing special in Sweden or Germany, but in Turkey people were quite amazed and asked him if it was his real hair and wanted to touch it. It all ended with us making an intermediate landing in Istanbul where the (big, masculine) passport police looked at Johan's passport, then he looked at Johan (who started to feel a bit nervous) and gave him a huge smile and said You look like a kitten! We've been laughing about it ever since October and today it is time to share this story with you.

  4. I once had a tutor who praised me by saying he was "the mother cat, licking the little kitten all over", I hope that is not what the big, masculine, passport police were thinking. :P

  10. Hehehe! This reminded me of the time I used to dye my hair red and went to Rhodes island. The owner of the liquer store wanted to pour me a drink and said: "In Greece we believe women with red hair have more sex hormones!" Needless to say, since then my friends called me Sexhormone. xD
