Aw, don’t be embarrassed. Scotland was fun because of the bollocks. We rode a coach tour, and when we got to Edinburgh, our regular tour guide was replaced with a bombastic 6-and-a-half-foot-tall Scotsman with a kilt. He would probably have made you cringe with all the lies he was telling, but I laughed my ass off. At one point we passed by the birthplace of the man who invented chloroform. He’s credited for ensuring the birth of Mary, Queen of Scots, thus he’s a national hero. We then got to attend the Festival of the Haggiss at our hotel.
Is it true that Scots consider the current Queen Elizabeth as the First because they refuse to recognize the existence of the actual first Elizabeth, who ordered the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots? The tour guide said even the postal code reflects that.
