So, I’m reading this contemporary romance with late 20-somethings. The Irish guy uses words like “spitfire,” “vixen,” and “courting.” Mind you, I’ve never been to Ireland, but I have been over the UK and never heard any under 30-something or even over 30-something use these words. I feel like I’m reading an old Harlequin romance.
Anyone have input or thoughts? Or would like to inform me that, “Why, yes. Our Irish 20-somethings do use these words in their everyday language.”
Each time I read one of these words I feel like I’m being poked in the eye. Boing.
