Something very un-Swiss just happened

To be fair, I would like to mention an American quality I like: spontaneity. While typing this sentence, Murphy's Law hit, and something very un-Swiss just happened. Elsbeth, my neighbor across the street, called and invited me for lunch--and it's 12:08 (the Swiss sit down to eat at 12:00)! Crazy! I'm accepting, as this kind of invitation may never come again.

In shock! I will return later.

(2 hours later) 

As I sit down to write about the lunch, my friend Vreni stopped by without calling first. Then, her sister and mother came, and we shared a coffee together. I think I will stop generalizing!


  1. Good humor in this blog! A famous woman whose name eludes me once said of her husband, "I may have married him for money or for love but I sure as hell didn't marry him for lunch."

  2. Sorry... I moved the lunch part to it's own post.
