Anecdote from the province

 

From the 60'ies province

The art of origami also arrived to Denmark, slightly delayed, in the early sixties. My parents wanted to try something else than white A4 paper, and thus went to the nearest town, the then quite sleepy and conservative Ringsted.

Inside the bookshop they ask the young lady: "Do you have origami paper, please?" She blushes, stutters, and disappears in the back of the shop.
