How MS Has Helped Me Perfect the Irish Goodbye

Wasn’t He Here a Minute Ago?

The “Irish goodbye,” as it is known, is actually a survival mechanism developed out of necessity by event-goers who don’t want to attract attention and be obliged to give prolonged excuses of why they are leaving so early … and without a cuppa, cake, and something to take with them. (Even getting an Irish person off the phone is nearly impossible!)

The Irish goodbye starts with a quick glance toward the door after meeting a partner’s eye or some other prearranged signal. Slowly, stealthily, you make your way toward the door, hoping no one will recognize you’re making a Celtic exit.

It’s not out of disrespect to hosts or guests; one just doesn’t want to spend the next three-quarters of an hour leaving.

It’s Time to Leave — Now!

It has been interesting to see others perform what I now know as “the Irish goodbye” when I’ve always thought of it as “the MS exit.”

For years I’ve situated myself near the door at parties. Caryn and I have an unobtrusive signal that can be seen across a room to indicate it’s time to go.

Who would have thought that 15 years of living with multiple sclerosis would have been training for our move to a foreign country?

Wishing you and your family the best of health.

Cheers,

Trevis
