Growing up, I was always kind of frustrated about St. Patrick’s Day because I would always get pinched for not wearing green even though my eyes are perfectly suitable to protect me from the claws of my peers. I would always get asked, “Where is your green?” and I would always point to my GREEN EYES. Come on you guys, this is not rocket science when you have green eyes you should be immune to St. Patrick’s day!
I will always fight for that right to use my green eyes, it is my right to use those eyes to get out of getting my arms pinched all day. Now that I am older, reflecting back it was kind of stupid to think about but, really? They make up their own rules, my mommy told me that I could use my eyes on St. Patricks Day. It was all a lie! I hope everyone has a happy St. Patrick’s Day and doesn’t pinch me!
