I can’t wait till Saturday. It is green beer and corned beef and cabbage day. Yup, that’s right St. Patty’s day is here again. I know that it seems like a silly holiday, but it is a lot of fun and I get to celebrate a part of my heritage. My family is Irish on my mothers side and Scottish on my fathers side. We are understandably stubborn, loud and jovial kind of people. St. Patty’s day in our family means a really big party. The women cook a lot of food and color the beer themselves.
We play stupid games and a lot of darts too. I don’t think I know one Irishman who can’t play darts. My favorite thing about it, is the toasts. We all have to come up with a good Irish toast and that is not as easy as it sounds. I am still working on a good one. They have to be completely original and that shit isn’t easy either. This is one of my favorite ones;
I drink to your health when I’m with you,
I drink to your health when I’m alone,
I drink to your health so often,
I’m starting to worry about my own!
Now that is fucking funny.
