In Case You've Ever Wondered Where I Get It...

Email from my Dad's coworker to dad/many other coworkers, forwarded by Dad to me & my sister:

Saturday is national Talk-Like-A-Pirate day.
It would be ok if you honored the day tomorrow (Fri).
Have a nice weekend.

With the included message:


Because I knew you’d want to be aware…!  We’ll be talking.  -Dad

Me to Dad:

 This is the kind of stuff you do at work?!

Dad to Me:

Aye, Lass! The day be an honored tradition amongst the lads. ‘Tis important to pay attention lest there be unrest in the galley or mutiny on the poop deck.  Arggh!

Dude, who doesn't adore (adarrrrrr) national talk like a pirate day?! My uber-techy ex-bf was very into it as well. Maybe it's an engineer thing...

hahaha sounds like something my dad would do, but it would have something to do with a weird accent or rednecks. LOL
