I met my first Irishman!


Last night at work, I was cashiering and a tall guy that looked foreign was in my line. Naturally, I got excited because I love talking to foreign people. When it was his turn to check out, he was buying beer so I had to ID him. He handed me his passport and I freaked out when it said Ireland! I told him I had just applied for a visa there and he wished me “the best of luck” and said he was here on business. He was from County Cork but said Galway (the city I want to go to) was nice.

I laughed later that of course the Irish guy would be buying beer. He’s homesick no doubt for his favorite neighborhood pub back in Cork.

Such a little encounter, but this made me so excited!
