Don’t Ask Nanna: About Icelandic Blueberries

Don’t Ask Nanna: About Icelandic Blueberries

Published June 10, 2016

Hey Nanna, 

My mother is from Iceland and when I was growing up she often spoke about blueberry season and how the bushes stretched for miles – when is blueberry season? Wondering if my trip maybe coincides with this phenomenon. I’m coming in August.

Hey Berry Delicious,

You need to give mom a reality check – they’re called Bilberries ma, DUH! They’re blue berries, not blueberries, UGH!

But yeah, they should be ripe when you visit.

Nanna

Nanna, 

Would you let your baby sleep outside a café in a pram? 

Oi Oi Oi

Hey Oi Oi Oi,

Would I? You mean, have I done it in the last twenty minutes (maybe yes). God damn, can’t a mother get five fucking minutes to drink a cup of coffee and shovel some snow in her nose without the looming presence of a sleeping child?

Nanna

Dear Nanna, 

I’d like to visit Iceland from September 25 until October 3. What flights do you recommend?

Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,

I am not Google. If I was, I wouldn’t be wearing underpants I bought six years ago. Just look it up like the rest of us schlubs.

Nanna
