Writer's Block: Kiss me, I’m Irish!

How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

A Toast...
To Grandma Sade who never stopped pining for "tha auld sod" even though she never set foot on it. And to my father, of the black Irish coloring and the leprechaun grin, who often told me,
"The best thin' aboot bein' from Ireland is that you aren't there any more."

Aunt Kathleen's corned beef is right up there. I also love Sade's Irishisms like Omathaun, Gomog, Oonchick, and Redshank. She may have invented "gomog," though one of my readers suggests that it's the diminutive form of the well-known Irish term for doofus, "gom." ("Og" is a diminutive ending in Gaelic.)
