Happy St Patrick's Day

I'm not Irish, but I enjoy celebrating St Patrick's Day every year. Mind you when I say "celebrate" it doesn't quite have the same meaning as when I was in college. Now those were celebrations....but that's another day's blog post I'm afraid. I recently had a guest on my radio show who claimed he was a leprechaun. Technically I suppose he meant he was a descendent of a leprechaun, but either way one doesn't often meet a leprechaun. I'm not an investigative journalist, my radio program is purely for light entertainment, so I went along with it.

Despite my skepticism, it turned out to be a decent segment, just in time for St Patrick's Day. During the interview we had a live caller from Ireland who happened to see the "on air" tweet for Blog Talk Radio and actually phoned in to speak with a real life leprechaun. She just wanted to be able to say she "spoke" with a leprechaun, and didn't have much to say. Apparently he has his share of photo ops with folks wherever he goes. I was disappointed that he couldn't produce any magic, nor could he produce any tales of finding s pot of gold. But he was full of funny stories, none the less. It may come as a complete surprise to you, but he also sells t-shirts and buttons about his magical Irish heritage.

After the interview, my magical guest with the brogue sent me a lucky four leaf clover charm as a way of saying thanks. I'll carry it around in my pocket this St Patrick's Day and see what good luck comes my way. Well that and maybe some green beer too.
