Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
Hoping you all celebrated a blessed St. Patrick's Day! We had a double header in basketball this morning and clearly St. Patrick interceded on both of his namesake's behalves and gave endurance, strength and resolve to their team to a) win both games and b) allowed the senior of the be-named to watch the games in their entirety with little distraction from the traveling peanut-gallery that tags along to all the games.
How did we celebrate? Well, it is customary in our family to allow the person to celebrate their Name Day by selecting the dinner menu for that night. In this case, since two people share this feast day in our family, it has generally defaulted to the younger one (with the older one knowing that the traditional corned beef and cabbage will be prepared specifically for him--since no one else will partake of it-- Saint Patrick's Day or not). So tonight, for his Name Day, the Boy selected Domino's Brooklyn Style pizza. Not to seem ungrateful for all the blessings of his patron, the Boy even managed to eat nearly an entire pizza all. by. himself.
