The Neighbors Curse

“OMG George, what happened?”

That dadblamed neighbor of mine put a curse on me just because I called him a Lepracaun.”

“Ok, so he did what, turned your sheep green. How bad can that be?”

“It ain’t just the sheep! He turned everything green. To make matters worse, the chickens lay green eggs and the cows give green milk.”

“Uh, I hate to say this George, but I wouldn’t suggest having any kids.”

“Why do you say that Max?”

“Have you looked in the mirror?”

“I’ll kill him! I’ll turn him into an ogre. I’ll turn his wife into a man. I’ll…”

“Oh it can’t be that bad. It’s only until St. Patricks day, isn’t it?”

“He said it was permanent,”

As you can see, it’s not wise to upset the Irish. There is the green of money and green with envy, but this guy went to extremes. Let’s run over to his place and see how things are going.

“Martha, that darn Scottish neighbor called me an irritating Lepracaun.”

“Pat, you are a Lepracaun.”

“True, but I can’t be that irritating.”

“Oh I think George will be over to apologize after he sees all the green.”

“Maybe, but I’m not sure I want to change it back. He needs a good lesson. He is the cheapest guy I ever saw!”

“Most Scots are my dear.”

Meanwhile, back at George’s place.

“You know George, these green eggs would be good for Easter. Never know, they might fetch a good price.”

George is one cheapskate. He did sell the eggs, and the green wool and green milk. Now he’s the richest farmer in the state. But he still doesn’t give tips at the local Eat ‘n Feed.

  7. Fun St. Patty’s story. Nice ending. (-: I once had green hair. It was supposed to be fun, but it was really hard to get rid of. Maybe it was the leprechaun.
    Best,
