Luck of the Oirish

Today our building management people set up some fun St. Paddy's Day fare in our lobby. (I know... Wrong day... I guess they have four buildings to entertain... Or something...) So, what yummy treats do you suppose they had for us? Well, I'll tell you!

  • GREEN shamrock cookies with GREEN sugar sprinkled on top!
  • Grapes – because they're GREEN!
  • Honeydew mellon chunks – because they're GREEN!
  • Kiwi bits – because they're GREEN!

That was the extent of the solid foodstuffs, but then there was a coice of beverages, as well:

  • St. Patty's Punch! White grape juice and 7-Up. That'll drive out the snakes! (It's not GREEN, though....)
  • Lime-aid! Because it's GREEN! It's limey! (Hey! That's not Irish!)

Jaysus, Mary, and Joseph it was a sad affair.

As an alternative, I shall be hoisting a Guinness or few (and playing my Songs of Bobby Burns disc — take that, ya bastards!) this Thursday.
