Happy St. Patty's Day

Deaglan was feeling a little low on this St. Patrick's Day, missing his homeland a little more keenly than usual.  He felt his face fold into furrows as he scowled against the cold wind.  Winter was giving a last little gasp, and this Irishman wasn't too happy about it.  He was just about to resign himself to feeling cranky all day when someone on the street turned his frown upside down with the offering of a free Shamrock coffee.

"My luck is changing, Deaglan thought.  He felt his wrinkles soften as he accepted this serendipitous gift, and reminded himself of a saying from his homeland, "If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough."  He was.  Hope you get lucky, too. (-;
