A weird afternoon...

Today Christine invited two of the three guys she selected to be eventual the flat lodger. First Thorfinn arrived with his bulldog Sweetie-pie...!

Thorfinn took a very short look at the apartment, said some impolite things about the wallpaper and the furniture and didn´t listen when Christine tried to tell him, that he could change everything. Meanwhile they had some coffee sweetie-pie sat on her owners lap like a queen. Christine didn´t know that he would come with a dog and the situation was very awkwark, because Piff & Paff were really unhappy about the third dog in the house! Paff didn´t stop to growl and Piff was so untamable, Christine had to hold him during the whole conversation...


In the end Piff jumped up the stairs and started to bark and Thorfinn had nothing better to do than to tell Christine that her dogs are very uneducated and that he´s not sure if he wants to live in a house with two little gadflies!! You have to know Christine loves her two dachshunds and they never behaved like that before. I guess they sensed Thorfinn wouldn´t be the right logder!

Later on Brodde arrived. He also took a very short look at the apartment. He didn´t like the furniture either and started to tell her what he would change and that he is a very good handyman. The weather was fine and so they they decided to sit on the balkony. Brodde came with a "Bild" newspaper under his arm and when Christine brought the applejuice he tossed his stupid newspaper on the table, his jacket on the floor...

and slouched on the gardenchair, while he started to talk about himself: why he would be the perfect man to live in the apartment... because he is so modern and his taste is so great and that he´s such a sporty guy... blah blah blah... every sentence started with "i am..."! Christine was totaly fed up with his self-adulation. Even Piff and Paff started to yawn! After a while he took his newspaper and asked if he could move in next week! Christine was speechless!

After Brodde left Christine was very unhappy with the afternoon. She felt like everything went wrong and it took a long phonecall with Mrs Lundby (who had unfortunately to stay at home with four children with chickenpox) to make her feel a bit better.

Friday it´s Hans-Herman´s day... :)

Whoa, good thing she found out right away how unsuitable those two are! Too rude, and too egotistical! Hope Hans-Herman is better! CM

Oh, goodness! Christine may have to re-run her add for a lodger! But...maybe Hans-Herman is the almost perfect man (because we all know the totally perfect man doesn't exist!)

I'm really disappointed by Thorfinn, I didn't think , he was so unpolite. At the first sight, he seemed to be the best candidate. His dog is not a problem, it's better to introduce him , not to hide him.
It's a good thing, that he decided himself, not to come. Christine, who is so delicate, will not have to tell him, she doesn't want to see him any more.
I'm not surprised at all by Brodde, he is finally exactly how he looked like: unpolite and proud of himself.
Poor Christine!

Oh dear! Good she found out before they moved in! Hopefully Hans-Herman will be wonderful.

@CM - yes, they both were a let-down but i hope hans-herman will be the best :)

@florine - i think christine knows like us there´s no perfect man in the world, but it´s better he´s not ignorant like brodde or rude like thorfinn!

@beafordolls - i was not so sure with thorfinn... and yes, brodde fulfilled all the bad forebodings we had :/

@pandora - yes, hopefully he will be wonderful :D i´m really looking forward for friday!

What a couple of total jerks. If Hans-Herman doesn't bring a dog or throw anything on the floor I think his odds are pretty good. I am still chucking at the Weird Afternoon. These two guys were a couple of dead beats. Thanks for making me laugh so hard.

Who would have thought! I can't say how disappointed I am about Thorfinn's behaviour! Like the others I'm not that surprised about Brodde. But like CM said, good thing she found out how they were before it was too late! Now I really hope Hans-Herman will behave!

(I just love your writing Nicola, you are really talented!)

Oh dear oh dear! What an afternoon! Hans-Herman is definitely in with a chance, and probably couldn't care about wallpaper at all - he'd just cover it with his posters ;-)

@amy - total jerks ;D you said it! i´m happy you laughed so hard - like me when i wrote the story and all the time i read your srories, too!

@helene - thank you for your nice compliment :) yes, that´s the way you could be deceived :/ thorfinn (by the way his name is schwedish because all lundby peeps are swedish here at my place) made such a good impression and then he was a conceited idiot! and brodde - it´s not funny if your prejudices are affirmed that way... poor christine :(

@rebecca - hehehe ;D but we don´t know yet if the posters are his posters? and i bet that hans-herman will have a real good chance!
