Bad Luck

Once a Leprechaun went swimming, out in the deep blue sea. Even though his head was spinning, he thought it might appease. He felt he needed exercise; what’s better than a swim? It’s healthy and fun, he surmised; it beats a stuffy gym. Without his trunks he felt so free; waters warm from sunlight’s rays; But in the distance, he could see; his clothes blowing far away! The lesson is simple; if you go swimming in the sea. Have something on in case your clothes start riding on a breeze.

"without his trunks he felt so free" - this part made me crazy-happy! I have done this in my own little lake, once upon a time. Nothing like it! So pleasant! I can picture it and I am smiling. Only one problem. Fish bite.

It's fun in a creek too unless you're swimming where there are copperheads...suddenly the fun ceases!
