Wearing of the.....

Like Jessamyn, I had a nasty run-in on St. Patrick's Day, but mine was when I was 5 YEARS OLD. Indeed, in kindergarten, I had a teacher aide, Mrs. O'Sullivan, who always called me her Irish Colleen. (Actually, I'm British--and Alsatian--but the red hair always throws them.) I turned up on this auspicious day in head to toe orange (a favorite outfit) and was not only soundly scolded and told off by this woman; she never spoke to me again.

Mamas, don't let your children grown up to wear orange on St. Patrick's Day?
