Tomás, Me & The White Gown

Tomás, Me & The White Gown


Hello, apparently, I am wearing a transparent white gown

Watching myself in a mirror I hope it is not too see thru I ponder to myself. It is not I can assure you, you look lovely, but you know what? It does not matter because there is no matter per se. He He go on you got to laugh at that one, this is one of my favourite. How ya now?

Who are you? who is talking to me? I am here, my name is Tomás, Irish ghost born and bred all the way from Wexford by the way do you like my gown? I like it too but with time I think it has turned a bit brown what do you think?

Hello

You are a new ghost, aren’t you? It’s new to me, it is, if that’s what you mean. Better be a ghost than the other option. The other option. What is the other option?. Well actually it is not really an option, you can be a ghost like us, or you become a bird, and you got to flap your wings around like a mad yok for 120 years.

Ah don’t worry it’s not for you, birding is only for those who have sh*t thru the eye of a needle if you see what I mean. You are not corped or in any ringin’ so ghosting will suit grand. The only thing sometimes is that your gown can get latcheeco with rain

Hello

Not Irish yourself but you got some strong Irish twang my friend, Dublin to be precise I would say to myself. How long have you been at the big smoke? Too long to care to remember, that’s alright my friend.

Don’t worry it is not too bad here the only thing is that you cannot hold a pint of stout in that state of yours, neither do I for that matter because there is no matter per se. He He go on you got to laugh at that one, did I tell you this is one of my favourite?

Hello

Tomás, do you know where and how I can get my life in order. I left suddenly I think. Hey top drawer don’t divil a bother on that one, time is different here you got to understand that if there was a fork in the bed you would be sleeping on the floor if you see what I mean?

OK that’s a figure of speech you see it does not matter because there is no matter per se. He He go on you got to laugh at that one, have I mentioned this one as one of my favourite?

Hello

I see you are preoccupied, you are thinking about your family aren’t you. It will get better over time I promise you. Who me? Yes, sometimes I think of or see her, but we did not really love each other. I would not get up on her to get up on a wall if you see what I mean?

But in the grand scheme of things it does not matter because there is no matter per se. Hey go on you got to laugh at that one, I know I told you that one already but sure thing it’s one of my all time favourite.

Hello

You look lost, you got to stick with me says he. You see not everybody liked me, my wife she thought I was on kesh too often, shkin I was according to her, but it does not matter because there is no matter per se. I think I already did that one didn’t I?

You see the old missus she swallowed the big spoon too and she has been flapping her wings ever since even if she was not such a bad bird after all (yeah, I love that one too!!!) Listen got to go, things to do, people to see and all that.

It will be grand if you remember that from now on you are wearing a transparent white gown.

yes, funny how many of us don't believe in ghosts, but usually have experience of an encounter with what might be a ghost. I myself have woken up in the middle of the night holding hands with a ghost lying to my left where the wall should be. It was in a very old farmhouse in the Japanese countryside. No hidden meaning I think.

Dean Owen I am not too sure :-) I think it is just a melpot of ideas put together randomly merely with a bit of Irish banter thrown in it ? Would that do? :-)
