about uncomfortable chairs

“A male gynaecologist is like
an auto mechanic who never owned a car”
Carrie P. Snow

Have sat in and on many uncomfortable chairs through my life – wait rooms, airports, hospitals … and at people’s home – but nothing is worst then the gynaecologic and dentist chairs.

Today I was back for my quarterly check up at the Ontological Gynecological Clinic at Lund’s Unv. Hospital – and every time I claim up in that chair – I always wonder why we can’t do the dentist on the same time, because they have both the most uncomfortable chairs and in both you feel extradited and vulnerable.
Can’t say witch chair I prefer most – could live without both for my mental status, but not for my physical.
The dental chair will be my favourite – because it’s easy to get up from.

Sure all women agree with me – about the gynaecological chair. Terrible and because it’s so uncomfortable we get so tens and then everything is getting so much more difficult for both us and the doctor. Then the tools they have to use – like torture tools. You have to be woman to be able to – claim up the chair time after time during our life, a man will only do once.

Same with the dental chair – with all the drills and strong lights plus the bib, but it’s a fair chair because both sexes end up in it.

“A patient asked the dentist, if it wasn’t nasty to be all the day with the hands in someone’s mouth.
The dentist answered “I just think of it as having my hands in their wallet.”

On my part … was it only good news today – even if it was out off  uncomfortable position.

“Life is a combination of magic and pasta”
Fellini

This is a perfect dish for me – who isn’t keen on cooking for myself – quick and not many ingredients. Nothing I ever served when I had guests – don’t know really why – probably for I want to make more of an afford – but it’s something I eat a couple of times per month.

Not much of a story to tell here … but the dish make up for it.

Three–colour Tagliatelle, 4 person
2 large courgettes
2 large carrots
250 gr/9oz egg tagliatelle
60ml (4tbsp) extra virgin olive oil
2 roasted garlic cloves – flesh (some whole for garnish)
salt and ground black pepper

Roast garlic; 180C/350F/Gas 4
Just put the whole head of garlic on a light oiled baking sheet for abut 30 min.
Remove the garlic from the oven and set aside – when cool enough to handle, dig out the flesh from the cloves with the point of a knife.

1. With a vegetable peeler cut the courgettes and carrots into long thin ribbons.
2. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil, then add the ribbons and bring back to boil and boil for about 30 seconds. Drain and chock under cold running water.
3. Cook the past to instructions – always boil in a large amount of salted water, so you can stir comfortable during the cooking. An Italian Mama never leave the stove while cooking pasta – she stir the whole time.
4. Drain the pasta and return to the pan. Add the ribbons, oil, garlic flesh and seasoning over medium to high heat – until the pasta is glistening with oil.
5. Serve immediately, with some roasted garlic cloves on top.
