Talk Like a Pirate Day: Gettin’ the Folks

Xena: It’s really nice having Christie here with us, but isn’t it time for Mommy and Daddy to come home?

Lucy: I know it’s Mom’s long weekend birthday trip, but it seems like 87 days.

Chia: Play with me! Let’s play! I got your cheek, Lucy and I’m gonna pull until you play with me!

Xena: I want my Mommy.

Riley: I’m gonna go find them and bring them home I heard somethin’ about a beach.

Lucy: I saw this on social media:

Riley: That’s them! That beach can’t be too hard to find. Anyone with me?

All: We’re coming too!

*A few hours later.*

Chia: I’m wearin’ the hat and that makes me the captain. I wanna’ turn this wheel when we get goin’.

Riley: Smartly, me lasses. Daylights a’burnin’. We don’t wanna be caught out in a storm after dark and end up in Davey Jones’ locker. That’s right, everyone in. No scallywags or landlubbers amongst ye, right?

Xena: Uh, what makes you think you are less of a scallywag or landlubber than us?

Riley: Garr. I be showin’ ya’ this picture of me in the (un)briny water:

Xena: Oh, ok. Sorry. We’re jumping in.

*87 seconds later*

Chia: I’m the driver.

Lucy: The weather looks clear, Captain Riley. It should be a good trip.


Xena: Where’d you go, Captain Riley? Are we there yet?

Chia: I’M THE…

Everyone: Yeh, yeh, we know, YOU’RE the captain.

Riley: I’m up in the in the crow’s nest and I’m really tired after all that walking to get to the ship. I think I’ll take a nap.

Unknown woman by the boat: Are y’all ready for the ride to start?

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!
