So I had an idea, well I had it a couple of days ago, but I’ve been mulling it over . I enjoyed doing my A to Z post, the one where my two characters ended up going to the Zoo. It was fun to introduce you to some of the dialect from Norn Ireland, although it does lose some charm in the process of transferring it from brain to page. Hearing the scenarios spoken is much funnier.
So my idea was to give the characters names and possibly a regular spot on the page. The seeds are sown, I’m just not sure I have enough brain power to cultivate them into saplings….I figure it’s worth a shot tho.
I’ll try it out and see what happens. If I or for that matter you think it’s complete and utter tripe it will most likely be consigned to the trash can.
Meet Billy and Seamus. Two fun loving eejits, neither of whom could pick up the prize for the brightest pixie in the forest. Well come on, there had to be a little of me in there somewhere.
They come from different religious divides, but are the best of friends and have been since childhood.
Both are currently unemployed, although to be fair it’s not through lack of trying. Times are tough and jobs are hard to come by these days. The lack of work however allows them the time to indulge in lots of mirth and mayhem…..hopefully (think brain think).
At the kitchen table……..
Billy: Are ye happy?
Seamus: Aye, why?
Billy: Are ye sure you’re happy Seamus, like, really sure?
Seamus: Aye I’m sure.
Billy: Well could ye tell your feckin face then!
For anyone who doesn’t understand I apologise, interpretation can be given on request.
Is it worth giving Billy and Seamus a shot?
