In the spirit of "everyone gets a trophy," this is what I got for passing an adult-ed class in Norwegian. It's pretty unlikely that being able to speak halting, ungrammatical Norwegian is going to enhance my career (such as it is). So getting a gold medal, like I'm some sort of Olympian, seems pretty hilarious. I mean, I take my studies seriously, don't get me wrong. It's just that I'm not expecting anything practical to come of it. If I were, I wouldn't be studying Norwegian.
