Norwegian man: Excuse me, are you English?
Meli: More or less. (I’ve finally tired of my usual oh I live in two countries but I’m from another one.)
NM: That means no. Are you Australian?
M: Yes, that’s right.
NM: Is that your boat?
M: Er, no.
NM: I thought you were a sailor. I was going to ask how the voyage was.
Maybe it was the hat.
