Okay so Izzy came home Wednesday from school with a drawing of a Leprechaun trap. She wanted to set it up to catch a Leprechaun. The drawing, she explained, was a box with a pot of gold in front. The Leprechaun would see the gold and then smell the lollipops and cheese inside the box. So he would go in and she would pull a rope to close the box and turn on a fan so he would be bouncing around inside until the next day and she would take him out to talk with him and play with him. Well... I'm not all that fancy in my trap-making, so I got a cardboard box, busted up one end of it a bit, hooked on a bit of frayed green fabric in that corner, had Clay eat a lollipop and leave the stick and wrapper underneath, along with a small black pouch with a gold dollar coin inside, and... Viola! It looks like I done caught me a Leprechaun. :)
So here Izzy discovered the box with the bit of green fabric sticking out.
She was so excited. She said, "I thought that was him. I think he ripped his pants when he tried to get out."
Underneath she found the eaten lollipop and the coin-filled pouch. The first thing she said was. "He left me his trash? How rude!"
She was so excited about the coin and her token "piece of the Leprechaun's pants" that she forgot all about his trash. She stuffed the fabric and the coin in the little pouch and took it to school to share with her class. She was so proud.
