Borderlands Can Be Fun

I don't think of myself as particularly ethnic, but I felt very complicated when the officer at border control looked at my last name and asked if I was Norwegian or Swedish. I was like, what, I have choices? I usually just put Caucasian. I think the pressure would have been too much, except that Norway has the nicest border control ever. One of the agents was dressed in a sweater and glasses that made her look less like an agent of the state and more like an agent of the Bookmobile.

Not particularly ethnic? You? What could possibly have given you that idea?
