It's taken me 6 years to remember to participate in National Talk Like a Pirate Day.
6 years of seeing that random New Yorker on the subway with a fake parrot on their shoulder and an eye patch, and wondering....what the?
And on one such day there happened to be a post on our family's MY FAMILY SITE from my cousin about National Talk Like a Pirate Day, and it all started to make sense.
This morning I remembered, and I greeted my family in my sleepy piratey-voice. Unfortunately I don't have the best pirate vocabulary so I ended up calling myself Captain Black-Mommy and Big Sis, Scurvey-Kid. I also threatened to have her walk the plank if she didn't pee in the pirate potty.
Now I am on my way to Target for some Frozen Barnacles (pancakes & Lean Cuisine).
