Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Pass the Whiskey…

We need all the luck we can get.

You might be Irish if…15 or more of these is true of you:

1)You will never play professional basketball.

2) You swear very well.

3) At least one of your cousins is a fireman, cop, bar owner, funeral home owner or holds political office. And you have at least one aunt who is a nun or uncle who’s a priest.

4) You think you sing very well.

5) You have no idea how to make a long story short!

6) There isn’t a big difference between you losing your temper or killing someone…

7) Much of your childhood meals were boiled. Instant potatoes were a mortal sin.

8) You have never hit your head on a ceiling.

9) You spent a good portion of your childhood kneeling in prayer.

10) You’re strangely poetic after a few beers.

11) You are, therefore, poetic a lot.

12) You will be punched for no good reason…a lot. (mostly for men…though, not entirely)

13) Some punches directed at you are from legacies of past generations.

14) Many of your sisters and/or cousins are named Colleen, Shannon or Laurie … and there is at least one member of your family with the full name of Colleen Shannon Laurie.

15) Someone in your family is very generous. It is more than likely you.

16) You may not know the words, but that doesn’t stop you from singing.

17) You can’t wait for the other guy to stop talking before you start talking.

18) You’re not nearly as funny as you think you are … but what you lack in talent, you make up for in frequency.

19) There wasn’t a huge difference between your last wake and your last keg party.

20) You are, or know someone, named Murphy. (heh)

21) If you don’t know Murphy then you know Mac. If you don’t know Murphy or Mac then you know Sully . If you don’t know Sully…you’ll definetly know McMurphy.

22) You are genetically incapable of keeping a secret.

23) You have Irish Alzheimer’s… you forget every thing but the grudges!

24) ‘Irish Stew’ is a euphemism for ‘boiled leftovers.’

25) All of your losses are alcohol-related (loss of driver’s license, loss of money, loss of job, loss of significant other, loss of teeth from a punch…) but it never stops you from drinking.

26) Your skin’s ability to tan…. not so much.   (Freckle, yes…tan…definently challenged)

27) You met your husband/wife/significant other/accountant/lawyer/landscaper/etc. in a bar/pub.

28) Childhood remedies for the common cold often included some form of whiskey.  (Hey SHELL!!!  Remember them hot toddies!!! *grin*)

29) There’s no leaving a family party without saying goodbye for at least 45 minutes.

30) At this very moment, you have at least two relatives who are not speaking to each other (not fighting, mind you), just not speaking to each other.

31) The only reason you behave yourself is “what will people say/think” if you don’t.

Let’s see…my personal tally? 26. You go ahead and figure out which ones don’t apply, heh.
