How Much Of An Irish Mam Will You Be?

You haven’t had childer yet, but when that day comes how Mammyish will you be?

Somebody is leaving your house. Do you mention to them that they might need a coat because it's got fierce chilly outside?
Yes, I have done this
It would need to be FREEZING out for me to say something

No, I've never done this - they can fend for themselves
I've lent people jackets so they won't be cold
Do you actually consume flat 7 Up when you're sick?
I do
No way
Do you always know where the draught in the room is coming from?

I am the draught expert
I don't even notice them

I dislike a draught in a room now, but I'm no expert in finding the source I must admit
Do you often whisper controversial words in sentences that you don't want to say out loud?

I do
Never
Select an optimum dryness of clothes before they should be worn...
Bone dry
Dry

Dry enough
Straight off the radiator
In the last year, have you informed a friend about a local death of somebody you didn't know?
I actually have done this
Nope
The most precious item in your house is...
The kitchen paper

My clothes
The fancy soap
And finally... an important-looking letter comes for someone you live with, so you...
Leave it alone, they'll get to it eventually
Fire them a text saying there is an important letter here for them (and offer to open it)

Mention it to them immediately when they enter
What? I don't even check the post

You will be a bit of a Mammy, 'tis true
Ah, you have a bit of the Irish mammy in you no doubt about it. If you have a kid you'll be quick to bring out the 7-up when they're sick and you won't let them wear a thing until it's bone dry.

You're not going to be an Irish mam at all
You won't conform to the Irish mam stereotype at all. You're not an expert on draughts and you'll probably won't give the little one flat 7-up either.

You will be the opposite of an Irish mam!
There is no Irish mammy stereotype that you even give the time of day. You are indifferent on other people's body temperatures and openly gossip out loud with no whsipering.
