Sometimes I think I was born to be a grumpy old man

Y'know, when my new English co-worker, himself a 2nd gen Irish immigrant to England tells me that my heritage is "proud" I have this perverse desire to say "Fucking take that back! My heritage is not proud! My heritage is no prouder than yours!" But I realize that this would only end in me dissing myself.

hunh. odd to think of a heritage being proud. heritage seems like something of which a person could be proud. but my heritage, by itself, doesn't do much. just sort of waits around for me to talk to it. tell it how great it is. wait for others to say so. my heritage would have liked that Irish Immigrant.

I guess he was dissing his own heritage if he thinks yours is prouder than his ... oh well, my Irish co-worker was content to accept California as my "proud heritage", heh heh.
