Look! The trap was sprung! Surely there was a leprechaun inside!
But wait...what's that coming out of the top? It looks like...a rope. A gold rope, no less.
NO LEPRECHAUN! But he did leave behind some of his loot. If the leprechaun escaped, then that means he will play tricks on the kids. Suddenly things start falling into place. That explains why Boo had the Boy's favorite stuffed chicken in her bed and he had her new Webkinz. It was the leprechaun!
He even defaced the kids' signs. What a punk!
Hey, we aren't that bad looking a family! What? You say the leprechaun was responsible? Huh. How 'bout that.
Okay, who bought the skim milk? Oh, wait...another trick! The little booger!
The kids were finding all sorts of messes that the leprechaun was responsible for but really, those were the work of a kindergartner and preschooler.
As for me, I am blaming my bad hair day on that little green punk.
