Shiver Moi Timbers! AAARRRRRRR !!!
What could be more fun than talking like a pirate? This Wednesday (September 19, 2012), you have my permission. Well, actually, you have permission from whoever created International "Talk Like a Pirate" Day. It's the real deal. You can look it up.
How do you talk like a pirate? This website tells you. But it's much easier (and much more fun) to watch our latest episode of MEG-A-RAE.
We've blogged about "Talk Like a Pirate" Day before. For moi, the celebration wouldn't be complete without a quick look at our book trailer for my favorite pirate novel.
Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson
(MPL Book Trailer #49)
You should dress-up like a pirate, like Sammy the Toucan did in the video, to get in the proper mood. Talking like a pirate may look easy, but it takes lots of practice to get it exactly right. Try it out at work or at home this Wednesday. Strange looks mean that you're doing it perfectly.
