If you’re all about St. Patty’s Day, rah rah for you.
For those of us who don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, all it seems like is a chance for party stores to sell green colored signs and napkins to people wanting to drink enough colored alcohol to turn themselves green from the inside out.
Each year, I forget about St Patrick’s Day until either it arrives or I realize I’ve missed it because someone is telling me their crazy stories from it.
And when I realize I’ve missed another year of doing something that normal Millenials are supposed to take part in, this is what runs through my head:
- Oh crap. I totally forgot about this holiday.
- Is this the one where people drink the colored alcohol?
- Is there any slang I’m supposed to know about this in order to seem cool and/or knowledgeable about youth culture?
- Whatever, I don’t even care. It’s probably dumb.
- *moment of faltering self-confidence*
- EFFFF, now I need to say I did something even better than getting crazy drunk with strangers in a place that’s loud and sweaty.
- Nope, we got nothing.
And thus we learn about the modern wonder of Cubicle City that is this: if your work doesn’t sponsor it and you’re tired at the end of a long day, you won’t be celebrating many holidays with your lazy self home in bed.
And here’s the second, hidden wonder of Cubicle City: if you’re totally ok with that, you need to get a life. And fast.
Now go enjoy this Monday with some boosted self-esteem and go make some plans for Friday!
With only your best in mind,
