what i miss most about ireland is that everyone thought i was either perfect or brilliant.
bartender: and what will you have?
me: i'll take a pint of guinness.
(three minutes later)
bartender: another guinness there?
me: no, let me try a murphy's.
either perfect or brilliant.
all the time.
i know keaton heard them tell me too.
and do you think she might just show me a little acknowledgement?
(maybe she's just plain awe struck. i do that to people you know.)
