Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top o' the mornin' to ya! Here we are, the morning of the greatest celebration of Irish heritage that this country has ever known, and I am to be celebrating it, for the first time ever, in New York City. The tales I have heard about how St. Patrick's Day goes down in this island city are riveting enough, as all tales are from those who work the sorts of jobs - or call in sick to the other sorts of jobs - which allow one to start celebrating at 10 am. I have a little bit o' Irish in me, but I am quite excited to see how those of true Irish heritage celebrate tonight. Plus, there's a typical New York parade - with all the traffic I'm endlessly impressed with how diligently this metropolis puts together truly massive parades for seemingly any occasion - so I'll be able to pop down at lunch and feel a part of the festivities, at least for a little while, until after-work celebrations can begin in earnest. Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone, enjoy some Jameson or a Guinness, but please be safe!
