This post is part of the A-Z challenge, a blog challenge where you post everyday through April and visiting other blogs too. You don’t need to read my posts in any specific order, jump in when and where you want and learn some Swedish on the way.
‘När katten är borta dansar råttorna på bordet.’
When the cat is gone the rats dance on the table.
This is what happens when your parents / boss / teacher is gone (the cat) and you and your friends (the rats) will dance on the table and get up to other mischief. I am sure we all have memories when we have done just this, something we shouldn’t have done when no one was watching. My sister and I used to be up to all sort of shenanigans when our parents left us home alone for the evening. Probably to see how far we could go without anyone noticing anything.
What did you use to do when the cat was gone? Or perhaps still do.
