A Tall Tale (from a 4th grader)

Today after completing a globe activity titled "Leprechaun Spottings," one of my darling girls approached me with an amazing tale of her own leprechaun spotting.

Recently, on her way home from Rolla, her family was stopped at a light, when all of a sudden a short little man, dressed in green, walked in front of their car. I was dying to know more, so I said, "Tell me more about what he looked like!" With wide eyes, she reported that he was very short, had big gold buckles on his shoes, and a SIX leaf clover on his hat (we both agreed that that was a little odd). On top of everything, he had a huge bag slung over one shoulder and was limping due to the bag's weight (and she demonstrated the leprechaun's gait for me at that point). Then all of a sudden, he disappeared into the nearby forest!

She thinks his bag was full of gold!

  1. I KNOW THAT GUY! His bag was full of miniature unicorns. Bunches of them. I told him that I didn't think it was right for him to be carrying the unicorns in a big bag like that. He said I could "SHOVE IT!" And I said, "Say what?!" And then he limped away.

    He was quite rude.
