Dour, Dour Scots: (This post is a warning to all Englishmen, Irishmen and Welshmen)
This post is not a joke either.
If two people have tickets to go to a show or big event, and one is English and the other a Scot, the difference in their attitude will be there to see if you care to pay attention. Take notes now.
Not going together. Or even the same event, but, ,
The English person will say they are looking forward to going, and how excited they are, and it will show. The Scot will say little. Dour Scot. You’re usually never even told they are going.
When they return the English will say they enjoyed it but it was just another event. The excitement was in the build up and the event.
After the event there will be no end to the telling of it from the Scot. The excitement is in the success and triumph afterward.
This is what you are going to get concerning the Scottish independence vote in September. The heated debate will only begin after the counting is done. So be warned.
Yours Dourly, Dour Gordon
