Thanks. I was confused by "odd" - didn't know it was a name of one of the characters.

Nice poem. I have to wait with making friends until the end of my quarantine. Now I have to keep my 1m distance (which seems to be the only regulation here in Oslo - I've seen at most 3 people wearing a mask).

Curiously, both Odd and Even are traditional Norwegian male names. At least in the 50’s and 60’s it was common to give boys combined first names (with or without a hyphen), with the first being one syllable and the second two. Like, Per Erik, Bjørn Tore or, you guessed it, Odd Even. There is of course also Anders. As in “Ich bin — Anders”.
