37.2 le matin (in Belfast)

Starting your Saturday off with 50 French tourists for lunch is a challenge to say the least.

Unusually only about 5 of them spoke English this included one of the two guides.

Merde!

My putting on a French accent and asking them if they wanted "Gee-Ness" really didn't help.


We served them our usual tourist set meal, garlic soda bread, ham and cabbage with parsley sauce and champ, selection of Irish cheeses, chocolate cake and cafe (as the French like to say). They loved it! In particular the cheeses. And as the head chef wasn't in at this point they had been served platters of almost all the cheese in Christendom! It really was a treat for all the senses.

For those of you not fortunate to have been in Belfast on Saturday it was like about 28oc. Women were going lobster red and men were basically naked save for ill fitting shorts. We don't cope well with such conditions. Our French friends were struggling too, beads of sweat clung to most of their old and wrinkly brows.

As I bade them a fond farewell and we did our bit from the Sound of Music, "Goodbye, farewell, etc etc" I couldn't help but thinking that I wouldn't want to be on that bus in about half an hours time, you know, when the cabbage, cheese, garlic, and sweat really kicks in........

....nice.

Ah, you're a cruel, cruel fucker when you want to be.
I doubt the French would notice anyway. Apparently they use less soap per head than other Europeans (though about twice as much as the average person from Larne).

Nice to hear the Froldies enjoyed their scoff. On their own noses be it, though.

Gee-ness! Ha! Maybe not what the Guinness marketing board would want it called!

BK said...

well you have something there. After a certain age (say 40) we should have the option to be hooked up to the national grid to help dissipate the energy crisis with our self produced natural gas!

Manuel said...

bbb: stereotyping eh.......that's my job....

sam: Froldies......hahahahaha

bk: but the smell.......can you imagine the horror........?

Blondefabulous said...

I feel for the poor tour bus driver. I bet he didn't sign on for that! Eh...... dangers of the job and all that.

Manuel said...

blondie: he's with them for 8 days too......

savannah said...

sweet revenge later...gotta love it, sugar! ;-) xoxo

sooz said...

Boy am I glad I don't work in your fine establishment Manuel- being fluent in French, point that I usually get roped in to deal with the fuckers.... And that wouldn't exactly be my favourite way to spend a sunny Saturday lunchtime! :D

ruh-roh. Poor bus driver.

MJ said...

Cabbage and Guinness farts.

A distinctly Irish aroma.

Has it all got much worse since the smoking ban? Smellwise, I mean?

Manuel said...

Savannah: revenge of the bottom.....

sooz: it wasn't mine either......but that said they were quite sweet....

boxer: very.....

mj: One we are very proud of too.....

lbtw: just the male toilets......it's pure evil in there.....

BK said...

Can I imagine the horror? I AM the horror! Being a 43 year old bean munching/meat dodger I am all too familiar with the foul stench emanating from nether regions, haha!

Manuel said...

bk: nice.........eek

Gypsy said...

28 degrees Celsius isn't hot. We had temps in the 40's for a record 15 days straight last Summer. Now THAT's hot my friend.

Medbh said...

28 is brutal.
Once it's above 20 I start to wither.

Manuel, are you planning your holiday with LMM yet? I remember your heat stroke incident from last year in Spain.

Manuel said...

gyps: oh the sweet holy horror of it.......

medbh: hottest day in hundreds of years or something like that.....we are going to Paris in November.....nice....also somewhere south of Dublin in July....sweeeeeet.
