Had a hilarious time being a pirate for my tour guide stint during Harborfest (4th of July celebrations in Boston). Twas entirely voluntary but I was selling pirate maps to send kids and other humanoids on scavenger hunts in downtown Boston. Got my photo taken many times (wish I’d demanded gold or other treasure for my fine profile) and got “ahoyed” a lot as I stalked back through Quincy Market to change back to my everyday form. One guy paid for his map with some gold dollar coins so I went nuts over “pieces of eight” and “doubloons”.
I learned from the photos why you’re supposed to say “cheese” and not “aaarrrh” when posing—giant chin results in the latter case. Nevertheless, loads of fun being a flaky pirate wearing a Disney-Jack Sparrow hat and dreads along with thrift-store shirts and boots. 7 years ago

We totally had a pirate day for band camp….and guess you went all out?! I did! It was great. I had so many layers on but I looked great! Well actually kinda pirate slutty but I had fun! I even got to go around saying…”Aaaarggghh I’m a pirate!” Now who doesn’t want to do that! 7 years ago
for two summers(except the last) I have worked on a boat/ship of some kind, either parasailing or scuba diving. The one day I decided today was the day. We had more kids than normal.
I must admit I loved the attension.

Sometimes in getting dressed, or getting dressed up I forget how fulfilling dressing like a pirate can be.
I have a wardrobe that can happily lend itself to many character costumes (being an overt art-teacher) and have the freedom to plan my own lessons… Therefore technically I could show up to work dressed as a pirate for now particularly apparent reason, under the guise that we’re possibly working on some sort of nautical unit.

YArrrgh! One Halloween I went to the grocery store with my roomate to get some supplies for a party we were throwing that night. In one of the aisles a child tugged at his mom’s arm, pointing at us saying “look mommy… Pirates!” That’s cool and kind of cute and all. You know how people wear their costumes out and about on All Hallows Eve. The funny part is we weren’t wearing costumes. We were just in our regular street clothes, like another day in the life of two longhair hooligans. This was like 14 years (yarrs! mate..) ago. I could probably still pass for a pirate some days though. Landlocked. But it is worth it. I mean what choice do I have? No regrets, matey. 8 years ago
