I made myself a sandwich for lunch today.
I buttered two thick slices of soft bread and layered between them some lettuce, tomato and beetroot with a dash of pepper and a spoon of mayonnaise.
Just as I was about to bite into it I heard a voice say “Go raib maith agat”.
“What?” I said.
The voice continued “Déarfaidh mé arís é. Go raib maith agat”.
I was sure the voice was coming from the sandwich. I pulled it apart, and examined it carefully.
“Go mbeidh an ghrian ag taitneamh i gcónaí ort”. I heard the sandwich say.
I separated all the lettuce leaves and slices of tomato and checked them. I lifted the beetroot and checked the butter.
Then I realised. It was Gaelic bread.
