Notes 2: Burns Night is January 25, the birthday of Robert Burns, most famous Scots poet. It's celebrated with a dinner, singing, and the traditional haggis. Haggis is a kind of mild Scottish sausage, made of meat trimmings and organ meats, and encased in sheep's stomach. New Zealand is in the Southern Hemisphere, so it's the middle of summer there.
Burns Night (Haggis)
You always get swamped by the wave you don't see coming.
In the beautiful New Zealand summer, it's bampot to long for the rain on stone streets, the pub, the warm fug of sweat and beer, the mates, the music.
So it's a shock when an arm wraps around your chest, and a throaty voice whispers, "Happy Burns Night," in an accent that's just wrong.
And then you can't stop laughing at the package with the stupid tartan bow. You feel beloved, but it's fucking funny.
It finally comes out in a wheeze that hurts your chest, "I hate haggis."
