On Friday my seven-year-old son was getting dressed for school when the conversation below took place, and it of course made me crack up and thank the powers that be for sending him to me. This convo is another shining example of how my son’s brain works.
Blake: Today is a weird day. I’m supposed to wear green.
Me: For St. Patrick’s Day?
Blake: Yeah. (Five mins. later Blake walks back in my room wearing a brown shirt.)
Me: Why are you wearing brown? You’re supposed to wear green.
Blake: Because leprechauns live under trees.
That’s right. Brown is now an official color of St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s all because leprechauns live under trees.
Do you have any funny St. Patrick’s Day stories you would like to share? Leave a comment below.
