Shiver Me Timbers!

Indocrtinatin' the wee sea dogs for a life of pillaging.

Indocrtinatin' the wee sea dogs for a life of pillaging.


I celebrated Talk Like a Pirate Day a tide early wi’ a crew o’ young sea dogs in th’ local library. Th’ wee ones be skeptical o’ me piratin’ ways, an’ accused me o’ bein’ a pretend pirate. They pointed t’ me utter lack o’ a swashbucklin’ ship as evidence. I claimed that since I be a pirate any vehicle I be captainin’ be a pirate ship, includin’ me beat up Subaru. They then pointed ou’ that I kept handin’ them me hook hand so I could turn th’ pages o’ th’ book, an’ I had t’ grant them that point.

They be an enthusiastic crew, none th’ less. They listened t’ stories, learned proper shipmate phrases, shouted them wi’ enthusiasm, an’ sang sea shanties at th’ tops o’ the’r lungs. T’ end ‘t all, Captain Joni helped th’ crew make proper treasure boxes, so that they could hide booty in style.

Yarrr!

Talk Like a Pirate Day is only days away, folks. Shiver me timbers, bilge rats.

I once heard Penn of Penn and Teller say that any magician that couldn’t get a gig for New Years might want to think of getting a different job. I’m not sure what magic tricks have to do for New Years, but I’m thinking that since I specialize in ghost stories, and have been honing my craft on islands that claims ties to Captain Blackbeard, I’d better have a gig on this venerated day.

Lucky for me the good folks at my local library are up for almost anything, even pirates. And so I shall be entertaining the three to four year old set again. This time with Pirates. Yarr!
