Something for Saint Patty's Day

I thought it was only fitting for today to feature something with green in honor of Saint Patrick's Day, and, as a matter of fact, this is what I wore to work today in celebration of the holiday. I was actually a bit surprised that not that many people were donning green, but perhaps that's because I am from New York where Saint Patrick's Day is a pretty big deal.

I personally don't usually make a big deal of the holiday, although I do like to cook something like corned beef or shepherd's pie in honor of the occasion and maybe have a Guinness. Probably my most memorable Saint Patrick's Day story is when I lived in NYC and I parked my car in an area that needed to be cleared the next day for the infamous Saint Patrick's Day parade. Well, in the morning when I went to get my car, it had been towed! So I  tracked it down and when I did, I discovered it was parked outside of a bar, which was open with tons of drunk people (even at 7:00 in the morning) streaming in and out. To make matters worse, I discovered my car would not start, so I had to call AAA and had the pleasure of watching said drunk bar goers enjoy the festivities. Needless to say, I didn't make it to work that day due to everything that happened and so my students assumed that I was also out partying, which was very far from the truth!
