Happy S. P. Day!

I was getting some strange looks on the train this morning.

Some were amused. Some were a mixture of shock and horror. Some smiled and said "Happy Saint Patrick's Day". There were plenty of raised eyebrows and more than a few glares of outright scorn and disdain. Part of me met these visual greeting with confusion until I remembered....

"Oh yeah! I dyed my hair neon green for St. Patrick's Day this morning!!!"

For those that ever find themselves in a similar predicament I offer the top five responses to the question, "Why is your hair dyed green?"
(5) I'm going to a costume party after work - I'm the Chicago River!

(4)
I don't know what you're talking about. I'm just on my way to my new job at the nuclear power plant. We had a slight mishap yesterday but so far it's going great!

(3)
Why should I tell you about me hair?!? Yer just after me Lucky Charms!

(2)
I got a new hair colorist named Anne Shirley.

A Leprechaun pooped on my head.
Happy St. Patty's Day everyone!
(Number 2 is for the Anne of Green Gables fans and the title of this blog is for SP himself!)

Lauren - thanks for clarifying, you had me a little worried there.
Karrie - Happy St. Patty's to you too. Hope you had a great day!
Jason - Blessed are those who believe without seeing. ;)
Beth - supreme cool points earned. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite books and I've seen the miniseries more times than I can count yet Matthew's death still makes me cry.
