Today’s the day my pal Mare-Bear gets sworn in as a US citizen. She’s from Ireland originally, and moved to NYC about 8-9 years ago. For the past nine months she’s been doing all the necessary paperwork to become a US citizen, and today it ends with the swearing in ceremony. We’re on pins and needles here at the office waiting for her to come in and tell us how it went. After getting yelled at yesterday by a pseudo-boss, she was in no mood to come in after the ceremony, so I know she’s dawdling before arriving, but it’s almost noon already! ARG!
You know what this means, don’t you? No more Irish jokes. Only Irish-American jokes now.
