The twins had a most awesome school project due today. They had to make a leprechaun trap.
Rules: must me made out of scrap materials, no store bought stuff. Leprechauns’ are small, so don't make a trap for a giant.
Tips: leprechauns are sneaky, they don't read signs, and like shiny things. (reminds me of men)
We spent half of Saturday working on these wonderful pieces of art, and then afterwards they wrote stories of how they caught their leprechauns.
While they wrote, I dreamed. If I caught a leprechaun, he'd have a pot of gold. A pot of gold these days, is not worth a whole heck of a lot. Especially not a small pot. So I would let him keep his gold, if he lived at my house. Then there would always be a rainbow over my house, making it beautiful every day.
I could also hold his pot of gold for ransom, and he could do things for me.
- he could crawl back in the back of the dishwasher and clean out the drain, that I just can't reach.
- he could slide down the gutters, cleaning out the pine needles.
- I could train him to repell behind the couch and pull out the missing toys, socks, and crackers
There are all kinds of things I could find for him to do, that would make my life just a little simpler.
