613. Create a conversation between two Leprechauns on St. Patrick's Day. What might these tiny creatures talk about and why?

617. You and your friends have set off on a hunt for a four-leaf clover to improve your luck. Why do you need the extra luck and where do you go to look? If you found it, how would you use the luck to your advantage?

618. In Ireland, the Blarney Stone is a piece of a castle that is kissed by thousands of tourists a year to unlock hidden powers of intelligent speech and humor. What would you do if you gained such powers? Would it be worth kissing a piece of rock to do it? Why or why not?
