Decision making Norn Ireland style.

Ach look at that sunshine. What should we do today?

Belfast will be chocker block, not sure I fancy it to be honest.

Chippy tea anyways, no matter where we go, ok?

Do you not think you could do with losing a couple of pounds ya big gorb.

Eh? What you on about, sure my body’s a temple.

Ffs, it’s certainly the size of a temple. (laughing)

Give my head peace will ya, you know what I mean.

Here. What about getting one of them new fangled trains up to Portrush?

I’m skint. I’ve enough for a dander round and me chips and that’s about it.

Job seekers not come in yet then?

Kiss my arse, ya cheeky shite.

Listen, we need to make a decision here, cos the day’s marchin on.

My minds a blank. I can’t think of anything to do at all.

Nor me.

Ok so what’s our options?

Portrush or Belfast, that’s all we’ve come up with so far.

Quite a choice there, just not sure I fancy either. I’d love to do something different.

Right ye are, so think of something then ya gormless eejit.

Shusssh, I’m getting the old brain in gear as we speak.

Thought I smelt burnin!

Up yours! At least I’m trying.

Very trying, that you certainly are.

Wait i’ve got it…

Xray vision?

You know that place where all the animals are…ahhhh…Bellevue…?

Zoo? Aye thats a good un, let’s go, I’ve got enough to get us both in.

  1. I absolutely loved this. I didn’t read the preface and just kicked off from the start of the story. Then went back and read the preface. Then realised that yes, you did write a 26 line story with each line beginning with the next consecutive letter of the alphabet. Well done. I think I shall reblog that one! :D


  2. The first thing I wanted to shout out after reading this was “Brilliant Ted!” It’s an absolute joy when people put local flavour and colour into the prompt. Love the getting the brain in gear/burning line. Can I be an eejit too? I think I play the role fairly well, particularly when I’m around beautiful women. Well done son, a lot of fun!


    • Lol ty very much, and I’m glad you understood it!

      What made me laugh the most was your well don son at the end, don’t you mean daughter? lol


      • See, I told you I was a great big feckin eejit and why you should never assume before reading the About Page. As for the dialect, I think it was spot on and a lot of fun, I got it easily but then I am British after all and I adore Father Ted, the accent tickles me pink, which is why this was wicked!


Entertain the Eejit!
