The Irish have a lot of sayings and beliefs. Most come from the pre-Christian era when they were just pagan heathens, and these beliefs are steeped in Celtic superstitions.
Now they're Christian heathens. (I, like Denis Leary, pissed myself laughing when I saw a book titled "Irish Cuisine"...)
My dear-departed Irish grandmother was full of them. The Irish have a long tradition with this stuff.
Like if your nose itches you're going to be in a fight, your palm itches you're coming into money, you have a ringing in your ears somebody is talking about you...
You get a sudden chill and someone just walked over your grave. Things like that.
Well, this morning I woke up and my left heel is killing me. I wonder what that would mean to Mrs. Wiley?
I'm going to kick someone's ass soon?
