but he believed? like really?
He was like “no really? Get outt!” And I was like “Ik, it’s weird! His name was Patrick Hillery, my mom’s dad.” and he was all “Is Ireland different than here?” And I was all “Well, I was like 8, but not really, I mean, the cities and roads are way bigger here.” and he was like “Yeah…wait, why don’t you have an accent? I guess you were here long enough to lose it.”
And I was like “yeah, it’s been nearly 8 years, so it left me, my parents still have it though.”
Then he was like “that’s crazy man” and I was like “don’t tell anyone or my parents will flip, it’s a secret” and he was like “wahhht the Irish police gonna catch ya? Alright, I’ll keep my mouth shut, that’s pretty cool tho”
AND I WAS DYING INSIDE AHAHAHHA.
