St. Patrick’s Day Postscript
I got pinched today. More accurately, I was threatened with a pinch.
The hostess at a local restaurant, noticing that I was not attired in green, playfully remarked,
“I’m going to have to pinch you…”.
Her hand moved towards me.
Frume Sarah: I’m neither Irish nor Catholic.
She blinked a few times, as though I had uttered something in an unfamiliar language.
FrumeSarah: This holiday…it’s really a date on the liturgical calendar of the Church. And I’m Jewish.
Hostess: No way. I had no idea.
FrumeSarah: Um…the holiday is called Saint Patrick’s Day. That didn’t give it away?
Anyone wonder what else has slipped past her?
