Writer's Block: Paint the town green

Do you plan on celebrating St. Patrick's Day? If so, how? What memories and feelings do you associate with this holiday?

Well, I vaguely suggested I might take Sarah out and treat her to a pint of Guiness tonight. But quite honestly, it's not a major deal for me. I'm not entirely sure why it's become such a major festival when (for example) St. David's day is pretty much ignored.

Other person 2: Tish and pish!
Other person 1: I'm just saying, as question masters go, he's no Bob Monkhouse, yknow?

Whut??! *scratchhead*

I think I've come up trumps with this pithy response:

Me: You say that as if it's a bad thing..?
