September 11th… I know.

September 11th has been a strange one for a good few years now.
The day of the twin towers attacks was my girlfriend’s 21st birthday and we spent much of the day watching the news on television and then eventually having a few beers and heading out in Galway, as far as I remember.
A really weird day.
Anyone else remember where they were? Just out of curiosity.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Sinead x

    I was at work. A security guard came in and said, “A plane has crashed into the Irish Trade Centre”. We all looked at him blankly until his marbles eventually engaged: “The WORLD Trade Centre”. Then our gaffer came in and said he’d just seen the 2nd ‘plane hit. “The world is at war,” were his words. Thanks for saying “September 11th”, by the way – I don’t know WHY Americans call it 9th November…

    Ronan – that’s a proper coincidence isn’t it?

    Johnnie – The Irish Trade Centre? That’s brilliant. “Jaysus lads, we’re at war hah? Grab some cans and ham sandwiches and let’s do this.”
