Strong fricking deers

Apparently Google text translation couldn't understand my MIL's strong Irish accent. This what DH just sent me.

I'm trying to pronounce "strong fricking deers" in a fake Irish accent but I still can't figure out what the original words would be....

Dontknow People from Belfast talk really fast and the accent is quite different from a Dublin accent. DH still slips up from time to time on certain words. For example, towel is pronounced TUR-el.

"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."

"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."

The company he worked for at the time, had their main office in Dallas and he was over on business.

Oh, so he was already situated in the States then. I was hoping for a romantic story like, "I went on vacation in Ireland and won him over by my beauty and he immigrated after a month." Laugh1

It was a bit of a story but not that romantic, he is a geek after all. laugh out loud

He was living in Belfast and over on business for three weeks. We fell in love during those three weeks. Then he had to return to Belfast and was due to come back but then 9/11 happened and for a while, we weren't sure that he would be able to get back into the USA. It did delay things for a few weeks but eventually he made it back, then he had to return to Belfast to await an H1 visa. Finally he came back full time and we were married in Oct. of 2002. heart

I agree.

If I were to agree with you then we'd both be wrong.

No.

It was a party. I was not drunk. There were no bar stools.
