The most typical things an Irish person does in the sunshine


It’s that time of year again! When the temperature can be described as mild and the sun peeks from behind the clouds for a few days. So what do we Irish do?

1. Go for a drink
Seems to be the typical Irish response to most things, but if it’s sunny outside you’re bound to hear “it’s drinking weather” or “few pints?” at some stage. Similarly to when it’s snowing outside when you’ll hear “it’s drinking weather” and “few hot whiskies?”

This, my friend, is a pint2. Wear less clothes
Finally you can actually leave the house WITHOUT A COAT. If you’re a young wan you’ll probably go out without most of your trousers too as you pull out the short shorts after a  disproving lecture from your mother. You better not forget the umbrella though, let’s not kid ourselves: we’re still in Ireland.

Sure we couldn’t be out enjoying the sun splitting the stones without a 99?? HA??!!

The temperature is tipping 8 degrees. It’s OK everyone, we have our new sunglasses. Can we get a selfie?

“We didn’t take a selfie the first time. Plus I’m only wearing my sunglasses now. You didn’t check us in on Facebook the first time either?”

It’s sunny this week so it means this could be our week of summer arriving early. No time to waste then, we have a lot to squeeze in. Better head to the beach pronto, those bikini photos won’t take themselves. Plus that’s another place we can drink.

It’s barely hot but after the fifth phone call about your “fair skin” from your mother you relented and put on the factor 50. Now it feels like it’s approximately one million degrees outside and you’re sticking to everything in sight.

The sun came out today. So logically everyone must be tanned today. Thank God it comes in a bottle. What’s that you say? You tan naturally? You don’t belong here.

There’s great drying in that weather. Sure aren’t we only delighted?

You’re the one who didn’t listen to your mother about the factor 50. Now you get to listen to your friends instead as they take the piss out of your beautiful beetroot complexion which really compliments your ginger hair.
