Arrrr! Matey!

Last week I got an e-mail from a co-worker informing a few of us that she was dancing in a pirate group for Rose Festival. She mentioned her pirate name. Not wanting to be out done, I quickly located a pirate name generator and proceeded to send it around the office. Within minutes we all had new pirate names. You can call me Captain Tom Cash. In any event, I got thinking about the pirate thing and thought that I have a 3 year old who loves pirates so what would be harm in going to watch some of them dance.

So, on Saturday we headed on down to the waterfront. When we got there a group of pirates were on stage singing pirate songs. Finally, the dancing started. All of the people were dressed up to some degree or another, including my co-worker, and they danced around while happily beating their sticks together. After a couple of rounds, the kids were getting restless and wanted to see the pirate ship, so we left. The show was entertaining.

The kids had fun and the rest of us were amused, so all things considered, the activity was a success. The only ramification is that since then, Junior's been sporting an eye patch that he got from one of the pirates. Because it throws off his depth perception he's been running into a lot of things around the house.
