Did you wear green today?

This is going to be short because I’m reading one of those books I just can’t put down.  I mean, I generally really like the books I read (because in most cases I’ll stop reading a book if I’m not enjoying it – life is too short to read books you don’t enjoy if you don’t have to), but I love it when I can’t wait to get back to one. Even if that book doesn’t make it to my list of favorites, it’s still a wonderful feeling.  I get involved.

John started his midterm prep today.  From now until Monday night, all of his free time will be devoted to studying.  This is for his scary Theory of Algorithms class.  I don’t even like to spell algorithms.  I keep looking for another vowel.  So John is up in his office, trying to concentrate, and I will do my best not to get in his way.  I think that’s the only way I can help.

    Yes, I wore green. It’s a color I like to wear anyway, but I admit I don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day because I’m celebrating the holiday. I’m protecting myself from the people (often near strangers) who think they are entitled to pinch me if I’m not wearing it.

    When was the last time you were pinched for not wearing green? I’m hoping it was elementary school or something. If an adult pinched me, I’d probably try to hit him. Or her. Or have you always worn it so you don’t know?

    Now that I think about it, I can’t specifically remember the last time I was pinched on St. Patrick’s Day (or any other day, for that matter). But seriously, I think it may have been either high school or college (by someone annoying and insipid, I’m sure) and I haven’t wanted to risk it since. I remember being shocked at the time, but that’s all. Must have been traumatizing for me.
