Happy St. Patrick's Day.... not!

This morning I was able to eat breakfast in the cafeteria, an activity in which I do not normally participate due to the limit on my meal plan. Apart from the pleasantry of being able to eat breakfast, I thought the day was going to be as normal as any other. You can imagine my surprise when upon walking into "The Eat Place" I realized it was decked out in full blown St. Patty's day celebration. Pictures of Leprechauns adorned the front desk and green banners that read "Happy St. Patrick's Day," were strung all over the walls.
"How come I didn't know it was St. Patrick's Day?!" I asked my self in confusion. I quickly raced back to my room to get my green tie on so as to not get pinched by those Irish enthusiasts. After making it into my room unpinched I asked Bryan if he knew it was St. Patrick's Day.
Turns out that I'm the only person who didn't know that St. Patrick's Day is in March. Why did the cafeteria have to confuse me like that?

PS Contrary to popular believe, we do love hearing from people


  1. poor tanner....don't believe anything the eat place tries to pull

  2. HAHAHA! That makes me happy.

    P.S. The picture makes me very happy as well. If I didn't know any better, I would say you are definitely a leprechaun...

  3. Remember Tanner, this is the same place that tried to celebrate Black History Month in January. The eat place and a proper sense of time have never gotten along very well.

  4. So my sister and I were reading this and she looked at the picture, started laughing and said, "he's short so it works!" I love you Tanner!! You totally just made my day!

  5. I love that you call it the eat place and that you know how to put your picture on a leprechaun. Its awesome!

  6. LOL, love you little green man!

  7. Oh, Ellie will love this, her little green snapercise cousin :)

  8. Dude, that picture is beyond awesome.

    And yes, St. Patty's Day is March 17th.
    Don't get fooled again!

    But that's a good idea for a prank.
    I might dress up the lobby like it's Christmas sometime soon. =]
