My name is Seamus O’Conner. I am a sober Irishman believe it or not. I loved Guiness, but drank one too many and had to set it aside. It has been 14 years and I am very happy because I have substituted the country of Italy for that tall glass of stout. I am in love and addicted to everything Italian and dream of living there half time with my lovely wife. I don’t know how we would support ourselves, but I really don’t care. I could be poor and be happy as long as I have an espresso in the morning with the lads and then a walk in the countryside and a wonderful lunch with Anne followed with a nap and then thoughts of dinner. I would be oh so happy.
Some day I hope.
