Though most years I don't typically get too hyped up about St. Patrick's Day, this year is turning out to be quite different. Unbeknownst to me, and without any actual planning on my part, I will be rocking out the St. Patrick's day theme of green for not one, not two, but three days!
It started out yesterday. In my morning stupor, I grabbed a shirt and put it on. As it happened, it was green (forest green, to be precise). One of the kindergartners I work with pointed out to me that tomorrow (that is, today; he told me this yesterday, so it was tomorrow yesterday) is school spirit day, and we're all supposed to wear green, and wasn't I silly because I wore green today (again, Thursday).
Given that I wore green yesterday, given that I am wearing green today, and given that I will be wearing green tomorrow, I think it's only appropriate that I declare it a full three-day celebration. Even though I don't technically have any Irish heritage (or at least, I'm not aware of any), this year I'm clearly in the St. Patrick's Day spirit.
Perhaps it's because I love a good beer (I'll be on the lookout for green beer tomorrow, too). But honestly, I think it's because I have so many green shirts, all in different varieties and shades. Simply put: green is fabulous. 'Nuff said.
