Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.
So avast, me hearties, and get yerselves talkin fierce! Today is also the day when yer Beauty and her Matey are returnin from their sojurn in Germanland. AAaarrrr. We managed to get by without having to walk the plank, and we’re lookin’ forward to gettin’ back to our own little pirate island. Till then, I have a little ditty fer yer readin’ pleasure (apologies to Dorothy Parker)
I should like to ride the seas,
A roaring Buccaneer;
Cutlass banging at my knees
A dirk behind each ear.
I should like to dance and laugh
And pose and preen and sway
And rip the hearts of men in half
To toss the bits away.
I should like to strut and curse
Among my blackguard crew...
Instead I’m writing little verse
As proper ladies do.
AAaaaarrrrr! ......... >ahem<
