Did you know that the “corn” in corned beef relates to the “corns” or grains of salt used to cure the beef? Now you know. Did you know that college buddies can get together and laugh over stories they’ve shared since 1970? Yes, you knew that.I had a fun BFF event over the weekend. Some college friends got together to celebrate a sorority award given to one of our Delta Gamma sisters. Then we went to see the movie “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day” at the Flicks in Boise. (I love the Flicks because you can have wine and popcorn during the movie.) The movie was delightful – the fun plot included rewards for the “older woman” (finally!) and there was no blood, profanity, or gratuitous pandering. Then we went across the street for beer, more wine, and corned beef and cabbage to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Is that a fun day, or what?I must raise a glass and toast my Irish heritage. My fraternal grandmother’s family came from Ireland where she was related to the boisterous, heavy-drinking Turner Clan and the mild, potato-farming McClelland Clan. I have loyally inherited their lust for suds and spuds. So, here’s a toast to all Irish and Irish-for-a-day friends. Sorry, but I just can’t do green beer.
