Yesterday after school Tink was brimming over with stories of her day. They all included a pesky leprechaun that somehow got into the fortress they call a school (apparently he makes an appearance here every year.)
Looks like the litte bugger got into the school early yesterday morning and wrecked havoc on all the class rooms. Books and nap towels were pushed into the floor, chairs overturned and some put on top of the tables. Luckily Tink's teacher remembered to put out a leprechaun trap and the little trickster was caught. He was never actually seen by the kids, since seeing a leprechaun is bad luck, but the trap was still in the class room and Tink swears she heard him calling "Let me out!" That's proof enough for me!
Tink estimates him to be about 6 inches tall since the trap was only about the size of a shoe box.
And he left behind some gold covered chocolate coins for the kids. The teacher was taking him outside to be released into the wild after school.
Sounds like a fun day to me.
