Watch for me in the St. Patrick’s Day parade tomorrow!

You can usually count on seeing me at the St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Five Points, but this year is special — you’ll be able to see me in the parade itself!

The way this happened is slightly complicated. My daughter who used to work at Yesterday’s somehow won the right to be on that fine establishment‘s float. But she won’t be in town on Saturday. This situation led to a worldwide search, and I was deemed best qualified to fill in for her, what with the close DNA match and all.

I’m told I’ll be right beside the bathtub itself, and there is no greater honor than that.

As I participate in this spectacle, I will endeavor to be as appealing as the Twins were when they appeared in the parade two years ago, below. Even though I probably look more like the old guy in the Mustang above.

Oh, well…

    The parade seems to attract lots of sober families with little kids. We give them schwag like beads….

      Good idea, teach the young kids to want/get beads early. Good practice for Mardi Gras when they get older…

    Have fun in the parade! I’m looking forward to seeing some photos from the float’s point of view. Would make good banner material for the photo at the top of the blog that keeps changing. By the way, that’s such a cool feature of this blog.

    Got to wonder about folks who were already drunk at 10:30 am, and the guy who was noshing on a polish sausage with onions…urp

    … his official campaign vehicle, he may want to look into spending some of his war chest on a new, beefier, set of rear springs?
