A Little Late For St. Patrick’s Day

leprechaun at king soopers in boulder Last week, in JUNE, police in Boulder, Colorado were called to investigate a leprechaun.

Some guy dressed in stereotypical leprechaun garb was in the parking lot of a King Soopers grocery store, hiding between cars and leaping out and pretending to shoot at people with finger guns. In a colossal statement of the obvious, police said the man “was acting bizarre.”

Apparently this was a lucky leprechaun indeed, because the police weren’t able to find him, and it should be pretty easy to find a full-sized man dressed as a leprechaun, even in Boulder.

Note to the citizens of Boulder: Though this leprechaun remains at large, it is probably not a great idea to try to catch him to get at his pot of gold. Unless you dress as a lizard, which I’m guessing would probably freak this guy out enough to make him cough up whatever goodies he has, or it could make him try to slice off your scary lizard head, or shoot it with a real gun if he can find one, as he obviously has some at least imaginary violent tendencies. So that’s probably not a good idea, either. Better just leave the leprechaun alone and get a lottery ticket instead.

  1. not sure I ever -really- gave up believing in hoibtbs or fairies or vampires, for that matter. It’s the difference between scientific truth and emotional truth. It is unlikely that those things exist in the way that we have them in books and stories, but there is more to heaven and earth than is dreamt of in your philosophy. Belief in something beyond your own logic makes a lot of things possible, including creative thought and paradigm shifts not to mention Christianity. How you explain that to a 7 year old is a little more difficult. I recall asking my 10 year old about other things that he did believe in that he couldn’t prove and talked to him about how not everything true is science, and not everything in science is true.
