Peanut: I heard that Saint Patrick played magic music and all the snakes left the land, but that’s nonsense because there is no such thing as magic music.
Sassy: ‘Scuse me Paige, but it’s not nonsense. Remember, the Ancient Egyptians played music to make the snakes calm down and not bite the queen so maybe it’s not magic but it’s not nonsense.
Mo: I LOVE snakes!
Peanut: He liked four-leaf clovers too. We should decorate the house with them.
Me: Actually, the story goes that it was a shamrock…a three-leaf clover–
Peanut: What story?
Me: The one about St. Patrick.
Sassy: So this is all just a story?!? What are we talking about then? I’m talking real stuff. Really real stuff about Egypt.
Me: St. Patrick is real stuff too. It was just a very long time ago so it’s hard to know now which parts of the story are real and which are not.
Sassy: That stinks. They should have used hieroglyphics.
Mo: My shoe needs fixed. It’s broken.
