UPPING THE ANTE
'Paddy, you didn't!' McSpud nearly choked on his tankard of Poitin.
Paddy stroked his ginger beard. 'Sure, and why wouldn't I?'
'It's against our rules.'
'That gobshite, Seamus, started it. He stole and hid my Pot of Gold. All I've done is return the compliment.'
'But Seamus only hid yours in a garden.'
Paddy fixed McSpud with a beady eye. 'So, you might say, I've upped the ante.'
Seamus stared at the distant city. Jaysus! How the feck was he supposed to find his Pot of Gold amongst that lot?
Seamus rued the day he'd tricked another Leprechaun.
p.s. Poitin is Irish Moonshine, usually distilled from potatoes and a favoured drink of Leprechauns.
