You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making a nest in your hair.
I was the only foreign teacher initially dressed up for St. Patrick’s Day today! Such a tragedy! I, looking so awesome, of course promptly shamed a couple people into going back and adding some green to their wardrobe. (ehm, Andre –better a late green than never). . .
Having class today, I asked my students if they knew what holiday it was. They didn’t (another great sorrow of my life), so I brought up pictures of the Parades for them to see and told them about the leprechauns and the green Chicago river. 🙂
I finished by letting them know that if they didn’t hurry home and add some green themselves, it was perfectly likely they might get some pinching. Their eyes went so wide. 0_0 It was hilarious. Made my day!
So happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
