It’s my first time to watch St. Patrick’s Parade in Toronto, after living here for almost four years. Last year, I saw a tiny bit of it while I was on a streetcar on my way to volunteer.
My knowledge of Ireland is solely limited to the two Irish couchsurfers I once hosted and a current roommate I’m living with. And oh, that movie “P.S. I Love You” also contributed to my lust to visit the country one day.
And speaking of the Irish, they’re known to be the Kings of the Drinking Game. So, don’t mess with them. LOL…. They have high tolerance of alcohol as it was proven by an Irish friend. A group of us went bar hopping and got drunk like nobody cared. Past midnight, everyone was tipsy but the Irish. Then at two in the morning, when the bar was closing, everyone was heavily drunk but the Irish. He was laughing at us for being so funny drunk while we were wondering how many livers and kidneys he’s got. My brain cells were dead and he escorted me home. I really had no memory of that night, except the photos and his very descriptive account which he narrated at our brunch table the next day.
But, let’s forget that embarrassing throwback.
Here’s what happened at St. Patrick’s Parade in Toronto today.
