Man oh man!! Yesterday was Talk Like a Pirate day and I forgot!!! You probably don't know this but I love pirates. Not really sure why. I just do. My 30th birthday party was a pirate themed bowling party (how white am I??). And, yes I realize that they don't really go together, but I like pirates. It all started the year that 2nd Pirates of the Caribbean came out. I was working at a summer camp the day it came out in theaters, and we had an impromptu pirate day. We made swords and bandannas and painted the kids faces. It was so much fun. Another counselor and I attempted to talk like pirates the whole day. And if you've never attempted to go an extended period of time talking like a pirate then you just haven't lived. So for the rest of the summer, I would randomly talk like a pirate. It tended to happen when I under the influence of a certain beverage. And from then on pirates were my thing. So I have *always* celebrated Talk Like a Pirate day with gusto. Until, that is, this year.
