For the first time in four decades a real Irishman showed up at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Chicago – Prim Minister Enda Kenny.
Ok….. ok…. I am sure someone who was actually Irish showed up to the parade in the years past. However, I always think its funny how American’s claim to be Irish or whatever at every turn. My last name originates from the German-French border and people from my family came from Germany in the 1870s, but to say I am German is absurd. Were American’s … think about it… 256 people alive in 1776 are your great to the fifth power grand parents.
I screwed up through today and wore teal on my socks… I didn’t mean to participate in the “Holiday…” I guess I’ll have to claim im Scottish and drink away my sorrows….. LOL
