Red ear

Those of our readers who know Tue well know that he isn't a great fan of headgear. And as the old saying goes (in Danish, anyway) "if you won't listen, you'll have to feel". During the first week of January Tue found one evening, after biking home in -15 oC (5 oF), that one of his ears was red and swollen - also a couple of hours after he had returned to the warmth of our home.


The swelling went away in a couple of days and after that the ear behaved just as if it had been badly burned under the sun. Said one f Lisbeth's Finnish colleagues: "Only teenagers go out without a hat in the wintertime". As Tue got not just one but two hats for his birthday, there's no excuse for biking without one from now on.

Any relation to Harald Blåtand ?

I cannot entirely rule out a distant relation there...
