Free Soup?

Last week, I was walking back to work when I saw a food truck. Food trucks have just appeared in Stockholm during the past couple of years, so I was excited to see what this one would be.  I walked over and saw people getting very large cups of fancy chicken soup (with cilantro and sesame seeds).  I couldn’t find a price anywhere.

A man walked up to me and asked if he could help.  When I asked how much the soup cost, he said, “Free!”

Thought 1:  Do I look homeless?  Is this for the homeless?

I gave him a long look just waiting for the catch.

He said, “The soup is free and if you’d like some advice, we’re happy to give it!”

Thought 2: A cult?  Do you want me to join your cult?

My Swedish was a little cloudy, but I finally figured out that this had something to do with the environment and more environmentally friendly heating systems.

I gave him a hearty nod and my interest with the classic, “I’ll have to tell my husband about that.”

And then – Score!  Free chicken soup!

      It was excellent! I walked by the same spot yesterday but of course there was no free soup. So sad. That soup was so good I might have considered joining their cult. 🙂
