Watching Derry Girls with our friend Zack.
Cheryl: I need you to explain the history here.
Me: This show takes place during the Troubles. A 40+ year civil war in Ireland. That only ended in the early 2000. One faction, the pro Irish IRA, would bomb things, and kill people en mass.
Zack: They were a domestic terrorist organization.
Me: They separated Ireland and Northern Ireland and signed a peace treaty. Now Boris Johnson is going to fuck it all up.
Cheryl: No, I didn’t want you to get on your soap box.
Me: Cheryl, how long have you known me? I always get on my soap box.
Cheryl: I need you not to.
Me: I don’t really have a choice.
Cheryl: Sometimes there has to be.
