Arrr, It’s Yer Pirate Day!
When I told our pirate loving, nine year old son what day it was, he thoughtfully said,
"Well, they’re not observing that at my school."
First, what child uses the word "observing" and further why would he think his traditional philosophy, uniform wearing school even knows pirates exist much less want to celebrate them?
I told him he could talk like a pirate if he wanted to, at recess of course, but I got the feeling he won’t be personally "observing" the holiday either.
Now I have a choice to make. I have a technology conference call with some good folks this afternoon. Should I talk like a pirate the whole time or simply sing I Love Technology from Napoleon Dynamite with or without an accent?
Don’t be scared matey, I don’t think I’ll be personally "observing" the holiday either.
Er, at least until after the call!
