We just got another monumental dump of snow, like a foot of it. How can that be? It’s MARCH?! I’ve been trying to think up of fun spring things to make and it’s so hard when I don’t remember what grass looks like. I think we need to move. Somewhere southern. I need a Leprechaun to grant me my wish to move.
Leprechauns, according to Irish folklore, are a fairy type creature in the form of an old man, usually up to mischievous acts. According to Wikipedia, “Leprechauns spend all their time busily making shoes, and store away all their coins in a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If ever captured by a human, the Leprechaun has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for their release.” Listen Leprechaun, I need sun. I need heat. I need real Vitamin D! Get me that, please!
I’d like to announce now that I have Irish in my blood, so don’t attack me with a righteous claim that I am being stereotypical, or somehow making fun of Irish traditions. Because I know I am. And I can. I’m one of you.
Besides, do you really think that I would go chasing after a little green fairy man in order to beg for the snow to disappear?
Yes, yes, I would.
