So what's a Scotsman like me to do? Join the party and host a pint or two for my Irish friends and have some fun. And just think about it, Jimmy Buffett might just show up in his beach duds and sandals to join the party, for St. Patty's Day is in the air everywhere.
As for our little leprechaun kitty who looks so unhappy in the picture, he obviously doesn't appreciate the seasonal garb. But he'll get over it when he finds that first mouse back in the establishment storeroom getting into the malt and hops. Then he''ll be smiling like a Cheshire cat and mellowing out to boot.
So enjoy this special "double whammy" on this special Friday. Be it the Irish pub or Margaritaville a la O'Brien, hoist your glass, whether it be The traditional green beer or a lime Margarita. But to do it right, make sure if you have one too many you have a designated driver. St. Patty's Day only comes once a year and it's now a great American celebration for all of us, not just the Irish. Participate, enjoy and remember and you don't even have to go to work tomorrow. And, as another special advantage, the government will leave you alone until Monday morning. Can't beat that, can you?
May the "Luck of the Irish" be with you and remember to kiss that favorite beau or gal. It's a lot nicer than the Blarney Stone, that's for sure. God bless.
