“Hello dear,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, when his daughter, Annie Leprechaun, came into the restaurant and sat down beside him. “I am so happy you are here.”
“Thank you Father,” said Annie Leprechaun.” So, what is so important that we are having dinner out on St. Patrick’s Day.”
“Well,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “This is a very special St. Patrick’s Day. I am honouring you for being the only female leprechaun in a male dominated world.”
“This dinner is for me,” said Annie, surprised. “Thank you so much!”
“You deserve this honour,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I know being a female leprechaun is rough. People expect leprechauns to be male and they expect a male leprechaun to be mean and nasty. I have seen some people being taken aback when they see you and they don’t know how to handle you.”
“I haven’t even noticed that is even happening,” said Annie.
“Precisely,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “You have been very good at dealing with people so, go ahead and order anything you want for dinner.”
“Thank you Father,” said Annie. “Do I get some dessert as well?”
“Absolutely,” said Grand Old Leprechaun,
Annie ordered her favourite meal of lime flavoured chicken and green jelly for dessert. She had a wonderful dinner and felt very privileged to be honoured.
