Earlier this week I was invited to participate in the Pittsburgh St. Patrick’s Day Parade, but I didn’t really think I’d end up going – there were just too many things happening this week and I generally despise crowds (which is why I’ve never ever attended this parade, despite living in and around Pittsburgh for most of my life). But I ended up waking up early this morning and I had nothing else to do, so… I went for it.
I went as a volunteer representative, and I have to say, it was a lot of fun. I didn’t expect to have fun sober while everyone else was trashed, but it was pretty awesome to see everyone having fun and being crazy.
Next year, a friend and I already decided we’re going to make signs for it to try to drive up recruitment. I already can’t wait! 🙂
