We had an assembly at school for "Speak
like a Pirate Day." It was actually an exercise in cooperation, because
if all of the pirates couldn't "Stop and Think" - our counselor's little
catchphrase - then we wouldn't be able to follow the treasure map and find
the booty. It was a great excuse for us to get all dressed up, sing songs
about drinking rum and chasing wenches, and run around saying "AARRRRR"
My teacher even got into the spirit of
things with a pirate doorag and shirt (hard to tell here)
I was nominated to carry the official
Stop and Think sign during the assembly, a great honor (or so I am told)
Breck got into the spirit of things, wearing
his King Leinenkugel hat and trying his best to make a scowling pirate
face during the assembly. In the end, however, I think he was happiest
just being the sweet natural him!
I guess I had my moments of stepping
out of character, but I'm allowed, aren't I?
Besides - I found the booty at the end
of the day!!
