A Proverb for St. Patrick’s Day

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one . . . that looked like it had considerably more of an overhead branch canopy, because my scalp tends to burn in prolonged periods of sun-exposure, you know? But, I also tried to balance that with a reasonable lack of scrubby undergrowth, because my skin is fairly sensitive to various weeds and semi-poisonous leaves, and I’d be looking at a pretty serious case of rash were there too many plants at leg-level.  Not to mention the fact that forest foliage is a haven for mosquitoes, for which I am a magnet, I don’t mind telling you!
