The Top 10 Things I Got Hit With on the Dallas Observer St. Patrick's Day Parade Float on Saturday

In no particular order ...

10. A Honey Bun (wrapped)

 9. A marshmallow (sticky)

 8. Multiple jello shots (thanks)

 7. Beads (catch and release program?)

 6. Half of an apple (that's just wrong)

5. A green donut (accessorized the shirt)

4. The urgent urge to urinate urgently (I mean, right now)

3. A foam shamrock (cool)

2. A brutally cold wind (cold)

1. A lingering hangover (sssh!)

And you wonder why it's one of my favorite Dallas days of the year?
