I hadn’t see Tackas for some months but I heard him before I saw him.
It was clear he was agitated and as he made his way to the bar I could sense a change in him.
Clancy ya young feck
Been a lifetime since I laid eyes on ya what the feck have ya been up to?
Oh just hanging about. You?
Oh Clancy me dear friend I’m bin up to a lot I can tell ya. Do you want the good news or the feckin’ bad news?
You have both?
I do and I’m feckin’ dying to tell ya both.
Well the good news first.
The good news is there’s no bad news. And I’m in love.
Yes and don’t be lookin’ so feckin’ surprised now.
I am Tackas but I’m happy for ya. What’s her name and tell me all about her.
Well her name is Jakelynn. She’s a palliative care nurse and as light and breezy as a blue wren I can be tellin’ ya.
You mean her names Jacquelyn.
No ya dumb feck, its Jakelynn.
That’s a weird name you sure you got it right?
Course I got the feck right, it’s not her fault that’s her name now is it?
I guess not.
Anyway I call her Jake saves a lot of bother. Now what was I saying oh yes now ya see she’s jus the most supernal girl I’ve ever met, I’ve been floating around like in ecstasy for weeks now.
Supernal. Heavenly like an angel. Clancy sometimes you disappoint me, your as thick as all feck, everyone knows supernal.
Never heard of it.
You know Clancy if ya stuck with the wordle’s you’d know a feck more than you do now, as it is ya know feck all.
Into the wordle’s again?
I am I loves a good wordle, I can feel it warming me feckin’ blood when I looks at ‘em twelve words.
Yeah ok, we’ve had this conversation before, so how did the two of you meet?
Well that’s the ting Clancy, tis a perplexing ting you know. You aren’t gonna believe it when I tells ya but I was out at the lake and I was wandering along watching where I was stepping cause there’s a lot of that slippery moss along the waters edge, when I hears the scream, and I looks over and its herself, neck deep in the water, as she’d slipped on the moss and now was suffering a right old drenching. So I fished her out and helped her dry out I did.
You helped her dry out? That’s very chivalrous of you.
It was and I’ll spare ya the feckin’ graphic details for I know ya a sensitive artistic type are you not? So only to say we got a long well, so well she’s coming to stay for the weekend.
That’s wonderful Tackas. I hope you have a great weekend.
So the feck do I she owes me the hundred dollars it cost me to buy her dry clothes.
