I’m not sure where I found this site or why I stumbled across it, but a few years ago I learned that September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Maybe it’s because “Blackbeard’s Ghost” is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies (yeah, it’s a little cheesy in places, but it’s lots of fun, too.) Anyway, while trying to avoid work today, it occurred to me that I hadn’t visited The Official Talk Like A Pirate Web Site in some time.
Since I’m still killing time, I feel compelled to let you all know that there are only 172 more days until International Talk Like A Pirate Day–hardly a minute to spare! I’ve just taken the “Whats Yer Inner Pirate” Quiz and discovered that I am “The Cap’n”–a good thing since anything less might have convinced me to take the quiz again and again until I got it right!
If there’s a task you’re avoiding — laundry, cleaning the toilet, cooking dinner . . . writing!!!! — give it a whirl. Discover the pirate lurking inside you!
I mean really. What can it hurt? (Besides the obvious in professionalism and maturity?!?)
