It's kind of a stupid in-joke. Gwen was a bit drunk once, listening to Flogging Molly's song "Rebels of the Sacred Heart" and she looked at me, slumped against my shoulder and slurred "Heeeey...this is our SONG, man...." I asked why that is, and she went on, "Cause we're IRISH, but we're not CATHOLIC. We don't go to the Sacred Heart church..."
So now, whenever I hear it I say, "Hey, Gwen. It's our SONG..." And she curses at me. :)
But R. O. S. H.= Rebels Of the Sacred Heart
So, are you Rosh? I-rosh...Get it? Cause "Irish", "Irosh"?...I /toldya/ it was stupid.
But a funny thing happened on Saturday. Haddie hadn't had a good day and she stopped in for a visit. At one point she looked like she could use a hug, so I gladly complied. Flogging Molly had been playing, but at this moment, the chorus to the song "Whistles the Wind" came on:
"Well it breaks my heart
To see you this way
The beauty in life where's it gone?..."
It actually would have been a really sweet (if cliche) moment if the two of us hadn't started laughing the way we did... :D At least we have a good sense of humor.
