Be picky Mattias! I don’t have to listen to you. :-)

Okay, I will…along with a couple other readers who pointed out the mistakes. I was really having a dyslexic moment! I even messed up exit with exist.

Infart/utefart were the first words I learned when I came to Sweden. I was working for Continental Airlines and we had merged with SAS and my team was sent her to learn how their aircraft operate…what a laugh! Bajsa is the first word I taught my kids when we moved here, lol… For some reason it still cracks kids up…go figure. Slut.
