Do I own green clothing? Yes.
Will I wear it today? No.
Why, do you ask?
Because part of me is Irish all year round. My father has the red hair and freckles to prove it. I grew up with an Irish last name.
I don’t need to be kissed.
To join would be conforming.
I don’t drink beer, green or any other color.
It’s a silly way to honor a saint.
But don’t take my ideas into account. Not everyone is stigmatized by their youth.
Feel free to join in, have fun and be someone you are not normally for the day. More power to you.
I’ll come back and look around tomorrow when it is all over.
