Well, it can be argued that several words and phrases came from Erin. First, there needs to be an understanding that Irish (like Welsh and Scots) is part of the Gaelic languag…e, actually uncommon dialects within the language. Words like "whiskey" have a direct meaning in Gaelic - the translation is "water of life". Other words. Donneybrook (a huge fight/brawl) Berserk (violent, crazed) - origin is thought to be from early invasions of Ireland by the Vikings, who were considered crazed warriors, or "Beserkers". How they got 'crazed' is open to debate - some think eating hallucingenic mushrooms. Phrases: "Bob's your uncle" - based on political antics performed by the British during their rule of the country.

Tongues of flames licked the wall in vengeance. Searing heat made it difficult for me to breathe. The fire soon began to have its life on its own. Thick smoke filled the air…,making the once bright room into total darkness like a stone age cave. The unbearable heat from the fire was making me melting helplessly like an ice cream. Acrid smokes filled my fresh lungs,making me coughing and panting. The deadly flames could be seen wrapping and destroying my whole house,devouring our hopes bit by bit.
