Avast, me hearties!

Today is the big day! It's "Talk Like A Pirate Day"!

Yaa, I know... I don't talk very much like a Pirate, but I love the idea. So how many of you can leave comments that sound like you are talking like a Pirate??? I would love try reading them outloud to my sons.

Pssssssssst - they have a "How To" section... here is a blurb from it:

But if you just want a quick fix, a surface gloss, a "pirate patina," if you will, here are the five basic words that you cannot live without. Master them, and you can face Talk Like a Pirate Day with a smile on your face and a parrot on your shoulder, if that's your thing.

Ahoy! - "Hello!"

Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!"

I read these out to my son, Tater, at lunch. He laughed at me. Sigh. Guess I'm just not a good enough pirate.
