In Which Jenn Knows Things Because Epcot

I am extremely proud of myself: I have converted my boyfriend to one of my favorite music genres! I'm talking Irish/Gaelic folk/punk/rock of the Flogging Molly persuasion. He's been listening to the Flogging Molly Pandora station and dug up all sorts of awesome songs, some I don't even know.

One such song is the traditional "Mari-Mac," specifically as performed live by Great Big Sea. He's been working on learning the guitar chords, and as the music played one day I caught something in the lyrics: "hills of Banoffee."

Banoffee, I thought. I've heard that word before. You can get a Banoffee tart at the Scotland kiosk during Epcot's Food and Wine Festival. Therefore...

"Is this song Scottish?" I asked.

"Yup," he said.

And that's how I applied my WDW knowledge to the real world.
