Alright, then, member since FEB 2021 (hopefully the latter end, which would, sort of, make you a Pisces like me...not that I care about such matters). Claire Elizabeth, is that truly you? I grew up around the Irish in Lower Manhattan, so much so that it has had a lifelong effect upon my writing (and voice at times; bad language as well...). People of Irish decent are also asking me if I’m Irish and where I’ve descended from. I was going to ask you the same, or if you were using a pen-name for anonymity. Then I read your prose and, no need. I hear it. Go on with you, then.

But have yourself a shot at my friend Martin French now, a true Irishman, lost in the wilds of Kentucky. If that makes any sense. I’ve been waiting forever for him to tell that story, but I’m afraid what he might do when he does.

Nice meeting you. Hope we bump heads again soon.
