Difficulty: 0



What's your name?

My name's Aileen



And I'm guessing you're from Ireland?

I am, I'm from Derry

Derry! Oh from the North of the country, ok

Do you live there or here?

Study here, live up there

Oh right! What are you studying?

Costume Design

Costume Interpretation


There will be subtitles on Friday

Right now, only I can understand it

You can probably understand it

I can't

No! No

So far you're not missing anything

I've never heard of costume Interpretation before

It's like costume design isn't it!?

Except fancier

Fancy! It's fancier Frank!

Oh! Oh yeah

Oh yeah


Pull the leaver

Ok! Off you go!


So leading up to Christmas I was back home and

And I-look at Zach's face!

Did you get any of it?


Something about Christmas

Yeah, Christmas!

That's the only good detail so far

Just pick out words, you'll follow the story

Blah, blah, blah, Christmas, Blah, blah, blah, home

I'm going into the shop and

I had to get

milk - and - bread

So I was literally really stressed

So I was like

Run in, run out

Get the groceries, let's go

Told my boyfriend to do a lap

And pick me up, no need to park the car

So, as planned I came out

Perfectly timed

Saw the people carrier casually just drift by, casual speed

So without hesitation, I sprint across with my groceries

Jump in the back of the car, screaming

and thumping the back of the chair, shouting "GO! GO! GO! GO! GO!"

but taking in mind it was Christmas & had like a scarf up here & a hat

I thought, which was my boyfriend, turned out to be the middle-aged, like, sixty-year-old woman

Hold on!



And pushed her foot on the accelerator, and went straight into a lamp-post

Good story!

You can walk! You can walk!

Well done! Very good
