Bård: “What was the childhood dream?”
- I got to hear something… I was in my father’s 60th birthday party last week, and there I met someone I hadn’t met since Africa. Or, I’d met them, but I hadn’t talked to them. And they said “Yes, this went the right way”, and I asked what they meant about that. And they could tell me that when I was going home from Africa, I was 12 years old, they’d met me outside on the lawn and said like “Bye then. So what are you going to do now that you’re going back to Norway?” And then I’d said, in the Sogn dialect I spoke when I was 12: “Two things. I’m going to marry Maria, and then I’m going to become more known than Dizzie Tunes.” It seems so incredibly distant to me that I should have said something like that. I didn’t know that I even knew who Dizzie Tunes were, and I’ve never felt a need to be…
Calle: And what makes it extra poignant is that those words were said in Africa. “Become more popular than Dizzie Tunes. Bye!”
Bård: A 12-year-old boy with Sogndal dialect…
Calle: That was beautifully said.
Bård: Sure it was.
Calle: You’re never going to become more popular than Dizzie Tunes.
