Last Thursday evening I had to chance to test my newfound Skype skills when I chatted with Expats Radio presenter, Peter Anstis, about being a Canadian in Northern Ireland. Although I’m not a keen public speaker, I had fun with this as Skype’s still a new toy for me. As we chatted during our videocall I had a good look around Peter’s studio and marvelled that I could actually see the person I was talking to (okay, so I’m technically behind the times…).
I did manage to concentrate long enough to answer a few questions and read a short piece I’ve written about my initial reaction to the Irish expression, Yer Man. Many years ago, before its meaning finally sunk into my brain, this innocuous expression caused me confusion and embarrassment once or twice.
