Amusement

St Patrick's day always amuses me.

Every year, everyone seems to really want to be Irish. Now I live in Miami - a city of transients. You do not really run into a lot of people born and raised here. But you will find people from all over the place.

And even among those born here, they consider themselves more Cuban or Mexican or Colombian than anything else.

And yet, on St Patrick's Day you see a lot of people wearing shamrocks and wearing green - and of course drinking.

So why is this amusing? Well it just is. You see, nobody ever wants to be Mexican - not even on Cinco de Mayo. On MLK day, how many people want to be black for the day? And how about that Eastern Orthodox Easter! Everyone wants to be Greek or Russian or whatever on that day huh!!

No??? Nobody even knows when Eastern Orthodox Easter is??

Interssting.

But yet, one day of the year I set to see Cubans wearing green, drunking green beer, listening to "Irish" music, and so on.

But not me. I am drunking stout. Drinking green beer in Ireland will just get you a well deserved ass kicking. And while it seems that at least some of the people I come from were Irish, not all were. And what does it matter anyway?

But I think I know what is really going on. It really has nothing with wanting to be Irish, and everthing to do with an excuse to drink. This is why Cinco de Mayo is gaining popularity. Mexican Independence Day? Who cares about that!! Just keep the beer flowing. Corona is 2 for 1 after all!!

That is a shame. But the Guinness is still there and probably still tastes good!!

The only experience I had with green beer happened in 1992. I drank one whole hell of a lot of it, plus cactus juice. I ended up spending the night curled around a toilet--literally. The next day on my way home I ended up puking behind a 7-11. I have never drank green beer or cactus juice since then.
