Every year we have grand plans for our St. Patrick’s Day festivities. And every year, the reality is a little different. Here’s some examples of what we plan, and what really happens.
Idea: This year you’re going to make a music playlist that delves into the roots of Celtic music.
Reality: Your playlist consists of Flogging Molly and The Pogues.
By the end of the night: You’re singing that old Chumbawamba song (“He takes the whisky drink, he takes the vodka drink”) and following those instructions.
Idea: You’re going to McDonald’s for a Shamrock Shake only.
Reality: Four shakes and two Big Macs consumed.
By the end of the night: McDonald’s drive-thru!
Idea: You’re going to have a nice corn beef and cabbage meal.
Reality: It’s so good you go back for multiple servings.
By the end of the night: You’re in a food coma so deep, an Irish Catholic priest gives you last rites.
Idea: You’re not going to wear any crazy St. Patrick’s Day accesories.
Reality: OK, just a Leprechaun hat.
By the end of the night: You’re wearing the hat, shamrock shaped glasses, a green lei, a “kiss me I’m Irish” pin and your face is painted the colors of the flag of Ireland.
Idea: You’re only going to have a beer or two and drink a glass of water with each one.
Reality: You drink so many beers you lost count, and still nursing one glass of water.
By the end of the night: Most of that water was spilled on the bar.
Idea: You’re not picking up anybody tonight.
Reality: You snagged the hottest person in the bar.
By the end of the night: You wake up in bed next to the coat rack from the bar.
Idea: You’re going to wear that shirt you got from TeeHunter to your St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
Reality: Everybody comments on it and buys you drinks.
By the end of the night: You go home with the hottest person in the bar—for real this time!*
*TeeHunter cannot guarantee you’ll go home with the hottest person in the bar, but we can make sure you look good with these cool St. Patrick’s Day shirts.
