Mick said he visited the Jameson distillery in Dublin with his wife, but does not remember it
So he brought up his wife Carrie as the +1

He figured it would be two words. 'Miedo' would be fear in Spanish. 'Sine' or 'sin' usually would be "without."
So he went with A.

I'd have to use the 50:50 after the ATA, but that would probably result in A & D being left.
