Then Pearlie said,
Quet that oul sweering you!
I'm thinking. I'm going to have to have a long, tedious debate with her about how lemon is not a swear word.
I didn't swear
Ye did so! Ye said fucking!
I did not. I said flipping.
She told me a filthy joke as we drove through Harryville but I didn't understand it and was too embarrassed to ask her to explain it. She's never told me a filthy joke before, although Matty has, and I've now discovered she's been watching Big Brother in secret.
After dropping Lizzie and Pepe off we called in with Matty who was watching the local news on mute. Ian Paisley was ranting on about something. I can't lip read so I don't know what was agitating him but I could probably guess. I wonder if he'll still talk about Sinn Fein IRA. Or will he move on to I Can't Believe It's Not Sinn Fein IRA. I called Pearlie in saying her favourite person was on the TV. Matty remarked,
He's well mended up since that time he wasn't well.Pearlie agreed Paisley was looking just fine. Matty said,
Aye he's quare and fresh looking yet.I suppose she had to say something like that seeing as she was drinking tea with his number one fan and the pair of them are in their 80th year as is Big Ian.
