100 Words, 100 Days: Day 25. On Irish Summers.

In Ireland, you can be certain of two things when it comes to summer.

It will rain. A lot. There may be some days when the sun will split the trees and you step out in your Bermuda shorts. But you will feel like a fool, because it will rain. A lot.

There will be spotty-faced, baseball cap wearing, loud and pestering Italian, French and Spanish students. These people will hijack the streets that were once yours by right and covet bus seats that used to take you home after a long day at work.

You will pray for winter.

  1. Which week will Summer in Ireland be this year, James?

  2. Let’s see…two uses for an umbrella. Obviously a modicum of protection from the rain is one. Based on what is written, I’d venture a guess that prodding the odd ill-mannered student in the arse is another.
