Just spilled my coffee in the shape of Ireland and started crying. Hope everyone is having a totally normal Wednesday too…

    Irish people get very homesick. Ive experienced it myself. A few months back at home should remind you that it’s not all that great, Holly! The Irish are a selfish, spiteful and backhanded people, and have shown it more when times are tough. Don’t feel too attached.

        Coffee-coloured surely?
        And isn’t it usually spilt milk that’s cried over…even though there’s no point.
        I may have overthunk this.

          don’t worry I went off in a mind tangent about the origins of the expression luke warm, wondering was it a comment on the biblical luke’s take on the Jesus fella…

            turns out nothing that fun
            Lukewarm’s exact origin is still up for debate, but the most popular theory suggests it first appeared in the late 14th century and was derived from either Middle Dutch or Old Frisian. The term leuk meant tepid or weak.
