Leprechauns

Look, this thing’s gotten way out of hand. I just like green, okay? I don’t dress head to toe in green and wear curly elf shoes or a green top hat. I don’t even like hats. I have great hair. People say so all the time. And before you ask. No, it’s not red. Some of us have red hair. Some don’t. I don’t—it’s copper.

Another thing. The accents. Stop. No one is trying to “Steal me lucky charms.” What do you think, we’re a merry crew of Irish pirates? Maybe we are what you would call Irish since we live in the country called Ireland, but we were here long before the Celts or those smarmy Brits showed up. 

Speaking of which, that bunch of chimney sweeps to the south is real big on reducing anything and anyone to a stereotype, aren’t they? Fine, yeah, there was one pot of gold that one time. Honestly, it belonged to the whole village and it was a pure coincidence that it just happened to be by a rainbow. Well, not pure coincidence—we like rainbows, okay? Sue us. But don’t actually sue us, they already stole all of our gold and pretty much all of our island, so, uh, yeah. People have gotten enough from us.

What else? Oh… We’re not that short! We’re the height that best suits us—around 5’1 to 5’3 ½ , does that sound short to you?

Sincerely,

Leprechauns everywhere

    1. Thank you! And fun fact, 5’2″ is relatively tall compared to one of my favorite people in the whole world; she stopped growing at 4’9″ (the height where you can officially stop using a booster seat, although I’m not sure adults are bound by those rules)

      1. Thank you for saying I’m relatively tall! It’s all relative at the end. Ha ha! Don’t we all need a boost occasionally though. Have a great rest of the weekend 🙂

  1. FYI and strictly for your edification; certainly not meant to belittle you in any way (oops!) There’s a LMJSDGS being held tonight in Smallville – the annual Leprechaun-Munchkin-Jawa-Seven Dwarf-Gripe-Session (surely you’ve heard of it). I understand it helps big time getting those pent up emotions out in the open. Baby gherkins, fried shrimp, cocktail wieners, Little Debbie snack cakes and mini beer shots will be served. They’re expecting a huge turnout so call for a reservation now at 1-800-TINYTOWN. PS – “Very funny story, there you wrote; my funny bone, tickled it did!” – Yoda, Jedi Master and Small Person of Great Reknown 😂

      1. I was simply having a wee bit of fun; seems to be a hobbit with me! Perhaps we can clear the air over a platter of Little Neck clams and Tater Tots and a bottle of Nehi Grape Soda?
