Happy Irish Day

I hate to say it but I am wearing green today. In fact, I kind of look like Peter Pan (with jeans). I can’t help it.

As with most things, I blame my mother. When I was a kid, she would send me to school in a green dress with a green cardboard crown that said “Erin Go Bragh” in glitter – and I would wear it – ALL DAY! I may have had some sort of wand with streamers – but that memory is a bit fuzzy – must have been the booze. I guess I’m just festive like that – or a total dork. But with a name like MAEGAN KATHLEEN SHANAHAN (maiden name) I really shouldn’t have to worry about getting pinched for not wearing green – I have no choice. I am as green as they come -without the alcohol problem- although most of the Shanahan’s in my family did not escape that one.

Left: Today

Right: 1980-ish, and so proud

    Nothing wrong with wearing green on St. Paddy’s Day. I only wish I ‘rocked it’ like you.

    Now that I know you are Irish, it makes sense that you remind me of Saffron Burrows (Circle of Friends). A little girl at the school I work at wore a headband today with the springy-things with glittery green shamrocks on the tops. Lol.
