I'll be shruggin' into me best pirate garb and sailin' to the library (where I work in the Teen Services Department) to hand out some treasure to kids what practice their "Arrrr." Also... Pirate Fluxx! (I love my job!)
Having spent the whole morning waiting in various areas of my local GP's office because of a Mystery Allergy, I had actually forgotten about Talk Like A Pirate Day until I got home and found a reminder in the email...from one of the Wing-level CAP officials! So I sent him a link to your song, just in case he had not heard it yet.
Ahoy there! If you have a Krispy Kreme in your area, they'll hand over an original glazed donut if you talk like a pirate. If you dress like a pirate, they'll hand over a dozen of these wonderful little gems.
When I went into my local Krispy Kreme, I sang a couple of verses of "Hermione Granger, The Pirate Queen." I would have sung the whole song, but there was a line forming behind me.
Yep! Wore my Jolly-Roger socks and head-scarf, and me necklace of tiny skulls. Sent out the to-do lists to my manager and co-workers with "Here be yer sailin' orders, Cap'n / shipmates," started the conference call with "Permission to board," and said "Thank'ee, lass" to the smiling woman bussing my lunch tray at the BBQ place. ("Wench" has a history of racist associations when white people say it to black women, so I defaulted to another piratey nomenclature).
Now i'm off to the farrrrmer's marrrrket with my little pink skull-and-crossbones coin purse full of gold dollar coins. Need Carrot shavings for me salad...
I had eye surgery 3 1/2 weeks ago - I was terribly disappointed that I didn't have to wear an eye patch, not even for one day. I was planning to wear it with a striped t-shirt and a bandanna scarf tied sideways on my head. (All purple, because my entire wardrobe is purple to begin with.) But I haven't been able to get my swash to buckle in decades.
Y'know why pirates always drink rum? Because "rum" begins with ARRRR, of course!
