St Paddy's

Conversation between me and Tara, my Irish classmate.

Tara: Happy St Paddy's day!
Me: wh..? come again?
Tara: St Paddy's? Saint Patrick's?
Me: Oh Saint Patrick's Day! Is it today? I thought it was in October.
Tara: That's Halloween, silly!
Me: Oh...wait...nope nope. That's Oktoberfest.
Tara: *glares* That's German....
Me: Oh..
Tara: *shakes head* You won't do well in Ireland...tsk tsk tsk...

What...they both involve heaps of good beer. *shrugs*.

Happy St Paddy's Day!
