she's a geg.

geg? hope you don't mind me asking whats that?

she's gorgeous and looks great in hats ..though I'm not sure thats a hat either is it?

it's her swimming cossie. but i think it looks like a hijab. she puts everything on her head.

'geg' is a northern irish word (it's probably ulster scots) meaning 'humorous person/incident/thing').

so you can say someone is a 'geg' (or a 'quare geg'- a real laugh). or you can say 'that was a geg!' meaning 'oh what a marvellously funny time we had last night'. or something!

Thought it possibly was a cossie, still looks good ... :)
and thanks for the explanation of geg - it's all clear now!

This little geg is beautiful and impish. I love this age.........I would happily spend the day with a bunch of wide eye gegs singing songs about wearing cossies on ones head.

This is a visible sign of separation and provocation.
