National Talk Like a Pirate Day

September 19th is semi-officially National Talk Like A Pirate Day. I'm seriously considering answering all of my email in pirate slang, but nothing will top my daughter's friend who came to school in a fully dress-code compliant pirate outfit (we'd be checking if swords are compliant or not, but we're still laughing two years later).

At a time when there is a lot of serious craziness going on in the Tri-State area, perhaps we all need a day to go back to our sea faring roots, real, imagined or otherwise. Pirate lingo-infused dialog definitely makes conference calls end before the sun sets over the yard arm, for the love of Blackbeard.

Comments:

Avast me hearties, even Cap'n Hal has time for yabberin' like a pirate.

Hurrah!

Sounds like I should drive down to Key Largo and ship you a Key Lime pie to go with your Pirate theme
