How's it going my gumdrops? Today is Saint Patrick's Day! Most people, who know me, don't know that I have Irish blood.
Over the years, I've had ignorami accuse me of lying about being Irish. It is mostly because I have a Caramel complexion as opposed to appearing a ghostly white.
Apparently, they assume that every Irish person (if not everyone with European blood) is pale, never had interracial relationships, or any flings with other people outside their races.
Talk about some dumb ass Americans! Our educational system in America is so low compared to other countries. This is why people from other countries laugh at us.
Here's a shocker about yours truly. You know the Irish engineer, Casey Jones? He is an ancestor of MINE.
In fact, when my great-grandmother was still alive, she despised Casey Jones. It was mostly because she ALWAYS heard stories about the man throwing Peppermint Candy to children on the Indian Reservation, as a child.
Throughout that woman's life, she HATED Peppermint Candy. Meanwhile, I LOVE Peppermint Candy and anything containing mint in general. It cures my nausea.
Whenever I feel nauseated, I always try eating or drinking something with Peppermint or Spearmint in it. This Saint Patrick's Day entry is not necessarily intended to explain more about me. If the preceding does give you more insight about me, then I'm glad it helps you.
Because it is Saint Patrick's Day, I know there will be some zombies roaming around drunk, if not drugged up because of the holiday. Some already had an early start to celebrating Saint Patrick's Day, 2 days ago.
Believe it or not, there WAS an actual purpose for Saint Patrick's Day, that most of us didn't know.
As we already know, the holiday fell on a weekday this year compared to a weekend. Some Irish Americans really hate the way most meatheaded zombies celebrate Saint Patrick's Day.
The zombies use it as an excuse to get shit faced.
Instead of me posting a long blog about the holiday, I'm sharing an informative vlog by YouTube vlogger, MrBettsClass.
In this vlog, Mr. Betts teaches his viewers about Saint Patrick's Day's original purpose and about Saint Patrick.
