I talk about this in my new podcast, Would You Ever Put Your Hand in Your Pocket You F**king Tight Git. My sister asked me if it’s based on anyone we know. I said it is actually. She said who. I said, me. (We’re saving for a summer house in Inchydoney.)
My nephew has a job in the media because he doesn’t mind working for 30 quid a week. I said, do you think people would watch this kind of show? He said no. I said why! He said, because the new thing now is observing vulgar nouveau riche types in the flesh. I said how do you know? He said, all the tour buses heading for Ballincollig. #Safari
My brother works in insurance, he finds it a great outlet for his chronic dishonesty. I said, what will happen if Story Rory makes a claim. He said, his premium will go up by 75%. I said what will happen if he doesn’t make a claim. He said, his premium will go up by 75%. #Shameless
My cousin works in U.C.C. as long as you’re relaxed about the meaning of the word ‘work’. #EasyGoing. I emailed her there and said, do you think your degree has improved your love life? Her reply was an out of office - I am currently out with a stiff toe, I’ll be back at my desk when it suits me. #Cheeky.
Time for the internet. I said Alexa, tell me something awful that could come between a northsider from Cork city and Crosshaven. She said Carrigaline. #Hilaire.
