St Patrick’s Day, a photo by 9567 on Flickr.

Sketching passerbys from a picture window at Starbucks in center city. I’d forgotten how crazy people could be when given a reason. I saw someone literally lying in he gutter.

Thank you, Sabahat!

It looks like he has gotten something to ponder over. Or maybe he is just very tired after too much celebrating. A great character with lots of personality.

Otto, thank you! You always have a beautiful way of saying it.

I laid on the sidewalks of Dublin dead drunk one St. Patrick’s Day. I do not miss those days at all. This St. Patty’s Day I ran 8 miles in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. I like that option much better.

A beautiful sketch, Allen. I can’t help but wonder what is on this man’s mind.

Comment by Dadicus Grinch

I love your stories, even ones that are as short as this one! I remember Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. I think you choose a better option for this St. Patty’s Day too.
I was wondering what was on his mind too…thank you!

I saw one literally slide down a street post in slow motion, looked like a Charlie Chaplin movie as he tried in vain to grope his way back up, but kept going down.

Jeez. Being in a state like that I’m sure they felt it when they finally recovered. Most of us can reflect on a scene like that with a touch of poignancy…and can only shake our heads.
