07-Mar Chroí Ceann

Hello, I’m John Malone. Never in my wildest imagination could I see my princess in this situation. I’m not sure I like it, but I’m not sure I dislike it, either. But she’s a big girl, and her life is her own, to do with as she chooses. Still, this is not quite what I had in mind when I taught Mark some of the Rules of the Cosantóirí.  I suppose I should have taught him properly, but Suzette’s still the apple of my eye and I’m still a little protective.

Hello and Greetings. I’m Steven Starr, mayor of Spaulding Valley. My Superintendent of Schools Mark Roberts has an…unusual, shall we say…living arrangement with Sue and the Sullivans. Not that it’s wrong, or illegal. Just different. What my clan fathers and mothers choose to do behind closed doors is none of my business. I’m happy enough for them. But with Mark’s having just been promoted, in some ways they’ve picked a rotten time to finalize their new relationship status.

Hi. Angie Sullivan here, and I couldn’t be happier for everyone. They should have undergone the Chomhartha de Lhrá agus Banna le chéile grá eile years ago, if you ask me. Ryan’s still not too sure-but he also sees how happy both sets of parents are. Besides…Dad needs all the help he can get, and having Mom and Momma Jill help to take care of him is a good thing,

You want me out here again? Are you sure it’s not my body you’re looking at? I am a supermodel, after all. This is all text? Oh, okay. It’s me, Jill Sullivan, again. Ár Russ, my husband; ár Sue, who’s now more like my sister than ever; and ár Mark, who’s more like a brother to ár Russ-and I won’t say what Mark and I are more like-share a backyard…and a lot more. We pretty much live together in a place we call Baile Comhpháirteach. To do that, though, you have to be As One Heart-in Irish, that’s Mar chroí ceann-and I should know, because I’m studying the language of the Cosantóirí. After all, given that ár Russ and I are not only grá clan-fhear céile agus grá clan-bhean chéile to ár Mark and ár Sue but also clan leaders with them, I really should know the language, don’t you think?
