I have decided that the way you dress influences what people think about you.

Duh, you say.

Allow further explanation, I say.

Today I noticed more people smiling at me. Walking into a doctor's office I'd pass a patient coming out. More than once the patient issued me an uncharacteristically friendly smile. I returned the gesture and kept walking. Each time. For it happened more than once.

Around the fourth or fifth person I began to wonder if I had breakfast on my face or in my hair. My approach to a mirror revealed that my appearance was food free.

Then I looked down at my feet. Good golly, I'd forgotten that I was wearing bright green patent leather heels. With buckles. Oh my, and my jacket displayed the exact same hue. I figured out right then why people were so smiley in my direction today.

They thought to themselves, That there is a lady leprechaun. Perhaps a grand grin will earn me a gold coin or two.

Now I very much regret leaving my gold coins at home today. I could have been a day-maker.

An Irishman in green? Of course people took notice.

They were smiling at you because they thought you were crazy. Not only are you not going to find a pot of gold in a gastro's office, but it is also June. You are a few months late.

Thanks so much for the headers. They totally fit my personality and blog. I'll put one on my blog tomorrow when I get a chance to talk to Ashley. Thanks again!

Kara's headers are amazing, I love them.

And I love your crazy colored outfits, they make me happy.

One thing I never THOUGHT I would do is correct your spelling.

I see no misspellings, you little imp!
