St. Patrick's Day Blog



Have you ever overheard a conversation that just made you say, "huh." Yesterday, while doing my Monday shopping at the Colerain St. Vincent De'Paul thrift shop I had a real huh moment. There were 3 teenage boys, all friends, shopping the clothes racks. One of the kids was around 6 foot tall, the other 5'11 and the third 4'11. The big fellows were apparently shopping for the little fellow. They wanted to buy him a green suit jacket. That's right folks, they wanted to dress him up as a leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day. Or, as the one fellow put it, "a St. Patrick's Day midget." They were envisioning this little guy doing "little jigs" in the hallways of their school dressed like a leprechaun. That doesn't sound politically correct. That leaves me with only one thing to say, "Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone."

You are the only one in the world who spells St. Patrick without the "K"! I know it's not a typo -- you're doing it on purpose. WHY?!

Ha ha, I left out the K every time didn't I? Strange. I reinserted them for you.
