We're discussing: Derry Girls / Series 2 / Ep2 / 'Ms De Bruin and the Child of Prague'
Pauline, Jeanie and Marie Louise wonder if one of them could be the "Craic Killer." They discuss the history and devotion given to the "enchanting piece of religious art" that is the Child of Prague and what happens if you "Seize The Day" and nothing happens? What if the best version of yourself isn't that great and when is an accident not an accident? There are memories of teachers who truly do inspire and guide you towards that better version of yourself…Will the real Ms De Bruin please step forward. Tips for a successful date night and how not to impress the love of your life, all whilst remembering that the Christmas cupboard is sacred and that espresso comes in a "wile wee cup".
