YOU WOULD THINK….AT LEAST YOU WOULD…I MIGHT NOT about what would be the biggest tourist attraction in all of Ireland. When I was asked that question the other day by one of the Alaskan cousins I had to stop and do what passes for thinking in my world.
“What is the biggest tourist attraction in all of Ireland, Cousin Krafty?”
Knowing these people as I do I immediately became suspicious. Was this a trick question? Was there a gag hidden in there somewhere?
“Biggest?” Did they mean the physically biggest attraction?
“Biggest Tourist?” Did they mean the attraction that would appeal to tourist who is the biggest? What would appeal to that 600 pound guy I’ve seen on TV?
“In all of Ireland?” Are they trying to trick me with world “All” in there? Do they mean the Republic of Ireland or are they trying to slip one past me by using “all” to include the counties of Northern Ireland?
Do you see my problem here? They are family and because of that I am almost obligated to be suspicious of them.
