How old am I?

As I was leaving work this evening, a co-worker more than twenty years my junior said, "Happy Saint Patrick's Day!"

This brought me up short. I'd been working with her most of the day, and only now does she think to mention St. Patrick's Day. The day's over! It's practically St. Cyril's of Jerusalem Day. Why bring it up now, when it's almost nighttime?
