I know I drink. I drink often.
I drink like it’s a sport; like it is a science. What is it with some people that they need an excuse, why do you need a holiday to get your drink on? “It’s New Years Eve, let’s Party”! “It’s Cinco De Mayo!” “It’s Thanksgiving, let’s hide from our twisted family behind a bottle of Seagrams!” Whatever happened to, “It’s Thursday, I have a job that I hate,” or “It’s Friday and I know I am not getting laid”? Whatever, I’m still in.
But let’s take a moment to find the real Irish in celebration of our Saint Patrick.
Go ahead and add some food coloring to your drink and dye your river green, you’ll look great in a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirt.
Pin on a shamrock, drop the needle on your favorite U2 single, eat your Corned Beef and Cabbage. and put a Leprechaun in your pocket.
What the hell, it’s Thursday and I’ll be drinking anyway so, might as well have some music to play us out, hence this playlist. But don’t forget to wear something green today, I can see you…and I have pliers in my pocket.
