Feeling a little Irish?

A conversation today with my 6 yr old DS#3 while riding in the car:

DS: "Mom, I think I'm feeling a little Irish."

Me: "What? Why do you think that?"

DS: "I feeling a little Irish because I am turning into a Lepercan."

Me: "Lepercan? Do you mean a Leprechaun?"

DS: " Yeah I think I am turning into a Lepercan. I kinda feel like the whole universe is turning into Lepercans."

Me: "The whole entire universe?"

DS: "You know, like Leperdogs, Lepercats, Leperducks........Lepercans."

Me: "You're going to have to explain this to me. You lost me."

DS: "I was watching this show on TV and the boy was turning into a Lepercan and his Mom was already a Lepercan but his Dad wasn't a Lepercan because he isn't Irish. When the boy turned into a Lepercan he felt funny. That's because he's Irish..........."

The next time you're feeling a little Irish check your ears for pointy tops and your clothes for a green tinge. Oh, and look out for Leperducks.

I wonder if we had Leperducks. They certainly seem to have disappeared.
