What Dog Bit Ye

A personal memorie from my hometown

What dog bit ye?

 

It was in my humble town of Derry in Northern Ireland

I was a ‘Creggan school girl.’

Here’s a translation for the rest of the world, A Skank.

I was taking a drag of my cigarette and a swig on my beer which I sneaked into school. And I observed everyone walking by my.

 

Along came a crying girl. My humongous mouth belted over the noise-

“What dog bit ye?!”

 

She replied, “None…My dad died.”

 

From that day on I never smoked a cigarette again.

The End
