This morning we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. Now normally, just wearing green is enough. Even in other tribes in this crazy movement. But we have our own Saint Patrick. He goes by Paddy for short.
Teasing Paddy is really the best. Laura can vouch for me. She’s the queen of it. In fact, when I started out this morning, I was looking for a little inspiration for the bounce from the Mothership’s own, Chris Payne, and this was what I got:
How did he know?! “Make ups some jiberish and have them yell it back” is exactly what Paddy did for Wednesday’s bounce!
A few minutes before we jammed to Dropkick Murphy’s, I looked up some Irish jokes on my phone. And man, they were just mean! Here’s a brief sampling of what I decided not to say out loud:
- What’s the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish funeral? There’s one less drunk.
- How do you blind an Irish woman? You put a bottle of scotch in front of her.
- What do you call an Irishmen trying to break up a fight? Liam Malone (for you Pete and Gil).
- What do you call a big Irish spider? A Paddy long legs.
Last one is my favorite, duh. This morning we replaced our whispered “Good morning” with a rousing and loud “Top of the morning to ya!” in our bounce. Got me feeling so alive. So jealous of tribes that get to just yell as loud as they can every workout. Must be nice.
Everyone killed it today on St. Patrick’s Day. You all looked so great in your green, clicking your heels. Stay safe this weekend. Don’t forget it’s a great day for a Guinness!
