Päntsdrunk? What’s Wrong With These Scandinavians?
This BBC3 article tells us that “päntsdrunk” is the newest, bestest hyyge, plogging, lagom lifestyle choice.
All it requires is that people stay at home on long cold winter evenings and drink alone, wearing only their underwear. OK! But in their underwear? Really? Drink alone in underwear when you can drink alone in the nude – if you must drink alone? Nude with friends preferably of course. And on the subject of drinking alone at home – well, do you? (OK, I do sometimes. “Got to just finish this bottle. Not much left. Go on then!”).
So what should it be called? nudedrunk? drunknude? You choose!
And by the way: I don’t think for one moment that Scandinavians, known worldwide to be free living and unashamed, would dream of sitting around in underwear. They are nude in family saunas, so why on earth would they? Perish the thought!
