I just got my nails painted green by our kind activity assistant. I already had a string of green beads on.
I remember, as a kid, being told that, on St. Patrick’s Day, you were liable to be pinched if you didn’t wear green. To this day, I enjoy teasing about this and enjoying some St. Patrick’s Day humor. I even have several St. Patrick’s Day jokes that I use for “joke of the day,” announcing them over our paging system.
This afternoon, our residents will enjoy some folk music from visiting entertainers. It’s neat to have an occasion to celebrate as we’re getting very weary of winter and are itching for spring. Although my family doesn’t have one drop of Irish blood, I can remember setting a special table and even enjoying green food on this mid-March festivity.
I write this as I wait for my nails to dry. I’ve been warned to wait a while before embroidering so I don’t stain the towel I’m working on.
With my beads and nails, no one’d better pinch me…I’m Irish for the day!
