Everywhere we went, people would comment on her being "a little leprechaun."
At the 37th mention went like this:
Costco lady: [fake brogue] Top 'o the morning to ye, little lass!
Caroline: Hi! I think it's afternoon now.
Costco lady: Right ye are, little leprechaun!
Caroline: Actually, I'm just a girl.
And then she turned to me and stage whispered, "I thought everyone knew that leprechauns aren't real!"
