One can't help but take it personally. I thought the newly subscription-free Irish Times
would give me the chance to link to the "I Wish I Were" article from Saturday 21st's magazine section, which it swelled my head to be asked to write.
But no: Royal correspondent Jennie Bond wishing she were on the 14th
, yes; actress & restaurateur Eva Longoria doing ditto on the 28th
, for sure. But yours truly, the burger in the bun, nope. In vino vanitas
: a lesson for me.
