A little known fact about a Danish man we admire and love.

Hans Christian Andersen’s Quirky Habit.

We love all of the fairy tales written by Hans Christian Andersen.
The Little Mermaid. The Little Match Girl. The Ugly Duckling.

Hans Christian Andersen is loved around the world, but in Denmark, you learn about his unusual habit. In 1857, one of his best friends, Henriette Wulff, died in a ship fire. It is said she could have been rescued if she had been carrying a rope. After that, Hans carried a rope with him everywhere he went, whether it was the local pub or a stroll in the gardens–just in case.

It also looks as though Mr. Andersen could have benefited from one of our ergonomically excellent desk chairs!
