It's all over Facebook... parties, parades, pub crawls... everyone's GREEN... all weekend long.
So, today I get to work and realize my error... TODAY is St. Patrick's Day... and I didn't wear green! Uh-oh. I am sitting in the basement, in my office and I have decided not to share this news with anyone in the building. Maybe they won't notice.
I remember when we were kids, it was a big thing to remember to wear green on St. Patrick's Day, or you would be pinched. I didn't like getting pinched. Therefore, I would come down to breakfast wearing something green, just to escape being pinched by my siblings.
And once you got to school, you would try to wear your green someplace inconspicuous in order to trick the other kids. If they didn't see it and pinched you, then you got to point out their mistake and pinch them back! I remember trying to get away with the fact that my eyes were green... they say that doesn't count. That was a particularly bruising year.
Guess I'll get out the green highlighter and do a little artwork on my fingernails or something before I head upstairs. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
