I do not like them. SAM I am.

Yars, folks. It's St Patrick's Day. So naturally, Mr B------ and I went out for Mexican. It seems everyone is indeed Irish on St Patrick's Day, as the folks at Panchero's have dyed all of the tortillas a sickly sort of green.

My mummy used to make us green eggs and ham* for St Patrick's Day. That would be an interesting incident if they looked anything like the book's illustrations. Instead, green-dyed scrambled eggs pretty much just look like a plate of snot. As we grew up, we realized how revolting they looked and refused to eat them, so they got fed to the neighbor kids.

St Patrick's Day is nice and all, but it results in a lot of rather repulsive-looking, disturbingly miscoloured food.

One time, when my mother was gone for some reason, my dad made us green eggs and ham. The eggs were actually green because he used a LOT of food coloring, and I was dissapointed that they didn't taste different. My dad also had to explain why the ham wasn't green. Thats how I learned how he made the eggs. I was like 5 or 6
