Curve Your Anger

“I hope you will let me march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade with you this year,” said Angry Leprechaun.

“I have been meaning to discuss that with you,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I am not going to let you march in this year’s parade.”

“What!” cried Angry Leprechaun, angrily. “Why?”

“I have gotten some complaints about your anger,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.

“My anger!” shouted Angry Leprechaun. “I have been working on it and you know it.”

“Yes,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I do know it. However, you are still angry. In fact, you just had an angry outburst just now”.

“Oh dear,” said Angry Leprechaun, realizing what he had just done. “I am so sorry. Can you please give me one more chance? What if I swore to you on a pot of gold that I won’t get angry like that again?”

“You do know that swearing on a pot of gold is a very serious matter,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “Are you sure you want to do this?”

“Yes,” said Angry Leprechaun. “I am sure. I really want to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.”

“And you also realize you really have to work on controlling your anger between now and the parade,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.

“Yes,” said Angry Leprechaun.” I do realize that.”

“Okay,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, getting a pot of gold so Angry Leprechaun could swear on it that he will curve his anger. “You have one last chance.”

“Thank you,” said Angry Leprechaun.

Angry Leprechaun did curve his anger and Grand Old leprechaun was very proud as he marched in the St. Patrick’s Day parade with Angry Leprechaun by his side. He was very proud of Angry Leprechaun.
