St. Patrick’s Day is almost here. Just a few more days until green beer flows freely through the streets. I have been training for weeks to prepare. Not for the beer mind you, I only drink crown, but for the madness that is St. Patrick’s Day.
In case you are in a frantic wreck trying to prepare, I have created a few quick tips to help you out.
1. Irish Parades: Start carrying around cabbage with you everywhere you go. Throw it at random people as they pass. This way when the floats throw cabbage and potatoes at you, you will not want to scream at them when it hits you. Sympathy.
2. Start pinching people who are not wearing green now. When people act surprised, and angry, simply tell them you were so worried you would not see them saturday that you could not leave them out of the fun.
3. Add green food coloring to all your food. So, when you are in public and the look of vomit green food makes you sick, you will have practiced. If all else fails pretend you are pregnant and puke. Men, pretend you have sympathy symptoms, or say you are pregnant too, it happens.
4.Dye your bath tub green. This serves no real purpose, but damn who wouldn’t want to take a green bath.
5. Last of all. Watch out for those leprechauns. They lost their gold in a bet with Romney. I don’t know what their plans are, but be careful. You do not want to cross a leprechaun.
I really feel the need to try a few of these.
I was at a bagel store and they were preselling green bagels for St “Paddy’s” Day. I didn’t have the heart to tell that it is Patty’s. Bagels are Irish though right?
Let me know how it goes. Bagels are all things to all people. I must go look for green ones now.
Loving your post:)
Why thank you
I am notoriously bad about forgetting to wear green on St. Paddy’s Day, and yet I am always diligent to drink some Guinness. This year will have to be different though because 30% of my maternity clothes just happen to be green and well I sadly won’t be drinking Guinness. Sadness.
Good thing beer helps make the milk come in after birth, or so I have been told.
I’ll take that!

Thank you! I am awful about remembering to do these, But I will try my best to pass it along!
Where is my delivery of fabulous St. Paddy’s Day treats? Guess I’ll settle for drinking some green beer today!
I do not remember promising St. Paddy’s day treats. You are on your own.
