 My dh had friend over last night. now I have told this friend numerous times that I am from SWITZERLAND.. (thats in europe and borders, germany, austria, france and italy).. you should think he knows that by now..

so this is the conversation we had

Him: Sandra do you eat crab or shrimp?

Me: no I do not eat seafood

him: oh you from scandinavia and dont eat seafood.. ?? Do you feel like a Scandinavian?

Me: Nope!!

the distance from Scandinavia to switzerland is about 1032 flight miles..

I have NEVER been to Scandinavia.

 well didn't you know it's all the same thing?  ;o)

a old neighbor of ours was from sweden, people would always ask her about switzerland all the time, even after she said she was from sweden.  she would get very frustrated!  never been to either but imagine "sw" are the only thing they really have in common!
