Suuuuure, your undies are green...

Happy St. Pat's day, folks! Now, this is a holiday I always celebrate. And by celebrate, I mean I wear green. And I pinch non-green wearers. And now that I have chilluns, they are garbed in green. The MOG, affectionately known as Scrooge, does not celebrate holidays. (pretty much) And the fact is, few people really recognize today as a day worthy of note.
Until now.
Evidently, it is a BIG DEAL in Kansas City. 4th largest St Patty's parade in the US. And IHOP makes a giant parade float, and wins the float contest every year. There's an actor on top, doing St Patricks speech in a pretty good accent. And 1000+ IHOPpers march behind the float, and then disperse and do street preaching and great exploits and so on. WEARING GREEN. How cool is that?
Yeah, well, we didn't go. Himself has reinjured his ankle, and it was raining. A lot. So he did his hours in the House o' prayer and I cleaned the House O' Clarks. Maybe we can drive over later and see the end of the parade. Evidently, all the masses get their drink on, and there's free cab service from 3 till midnight or something. I don't drink, but a free cab ride might be cool. Just, uh, take me to Target!
So there you go, top of the marnin to ya and maybe tamarra I will summon Smartypants.

  4. When I would forget to wear green, I would say, "I'm wearing fruit of the looms, and they have green grapes on the tag."

    Can't go wrong with needing a color and fruit of the loom undies.

  5. A free cab ride and you want to go to Target? How about the free cab taking you to the Grand Canyon or Disney? Gotta get your (free) moneys worth.

  6. And, if the cabbie says something like, "sorry maam, we have a 30 mile limit for the free ride." Just reply, "well, I guess I'll go drive my pick-up back to Disney drunk. Sure hope I don't hit a school bus...." That should do it.
