Oh man! Didn’t even know about the Big G turning 250! I’m not Irish, but I loves me some Saint Paddy’s Day action, and now that I’ve got an Irish sister-in-law, I mean to drink… in like, her country’s honour and stuff.

Over the years though, to me the day has always been about being able to embrace the spirit of something even if you’ve got virtually no connection to it whatsoever.

On that front, I HATE getting told, “But you’re not Irish!” when I’m hoisting a beer and yelling “Slante!” or “But you’re not Scottish!” when I lift my kilt and wiggle at them.

I’ve got the spirit, shouldn’t matter where somebody I’m related to and long dead was from.
