Recently, I was rushing out the door on the way to work on Saint Patrick’s Day and suddenly realized I wasn’t wearing any green. I’d already gotten dressed for work and hadn’t even thought about it at the time. I’d remembered it was Saint Patrick’s Day, but not to wear green to mark the occasion. My shirt was gray, my pants black. There was no time to change. What was I going to do?
Frantically, I hoped that I was somehow wearing some green and not realizing it. I wasn’t though. Not my shoes, socks, or even my underpants. There wasn’t even any green in the tags, not even on my undershirt. Did I have a green ribbon I could tie on my finger? I looked around my study, where I happened to be at the time, for some kind of quick, makeshift solution.
Then my brain flashed. I saw a green highlighter sitting on a bookshelf.
Yup, I got this. That’s some MacGyver level problem solving right there. I’ll take some applause now.
