Wearin O' the Green!
As the St. Patrick's Day festivities go "rip-roaring" through downtown parades and pubs across America today, I can't help to remind myself about the fun and friendly tradition of pinching those unfortunate souls who forget to wear green. Funny how much this tradition has in common with the even bigger calender event coming up next month. No, not Easter, but rather April 15th...a.k.a. "Tax Day", or as I like to call it, "Federal Government Payday". It's circled on my calendar just like payday is, so why not? With "Federal Government Payday" looming less than a month away, I started to see the similarity of what happens on St. Paddy's Day, with the fun and excitement of what happens on April 15, when we don't "bring out the green". Different day, same result...a painful and annoying "pinch" just to remind you that you forgot something. Spooky coincidence, or is my imagination getting too carried away? I suppose I could just meet somewhere in the middle and call it a little of both. However, as I do sometimes, I start to think (which isn't always a good idea) maybe instead of paying my taxes this year, maybe I should just wear something green on April 15. Then again, if I want to continue writing my blog, (and farming oranges) I would at the very least need Wi-Fi in prison. Oh well, at least I still have green beer to look forward to as I call my accountant to see if he needs any other documents before next month. Cheers to all and happy St. Patrick's Day!
