Taking the writing challenge for every day in March. Anyone else want to contribute a childhood memory?

Thinking about tomorrow being St. Patrick's Day, I told my daughter about when I was in elementary school. I thought it was great to wear green on St. Patrick's Day. Only one boy in our grade was Irish American, but it was fun nonetheless. Problem was, I didn't have much green. I told my daughter that at my school, my classmates loved to pinch students who forgot to wear green on them (did anyone else have this "tradition"?).So I found myself coming up with lame excuses that I had something green on such as, "My underwear have flowers on, and the leaves have green. Right here." That, of course, necessitated revealing some of my underwear, so that started to seem like a bad idea after a few tries. Anyway, not much to tell tonight. I just thought I'd share my childhood goofiness.
