But what about the rum?

Capt. John and I

This is Capt. John Sparrow and me at the Ringling Medieval Faire. I’m trying to act casual, like I hang out with guys dressed like pirates all the time. (By the way, I liked pirates and Johnny Depp before the movie, when he was in Gilbert Grape and Edward Scissorhands.)

When I was a kid, there was a treasure chest filled with gold foil covered chocolate coins in the Sears Christmas catalog. I had this thing for little boxes and keys and secret stuff and I wanted that treasure chest. And of course I didn’t get it.

So I dug in my sandbox and collected pretty rocks and fossils and birdsnests instead.

I’m thinking there’s a crappy plastic treasure chest out there with my name on it and some pirate’s looking for me.

    Ha…yes…a treasure chest of “gelt” (the jewish version of the chocolate coins). Leave it to Sears to put them in a treasure chest and leave it to the jewish chocolate coin makers to put them in cheap mesh bags. I feel so deprived now. I’d much rather have the treasure chest.

    Actually I used to have these mineral laced rocks…i guess granite rocks behind my house growing up. I used to think they were actually worth something, until i realized they were useless granite. So disappointing was that day…but glad to know i wasn’t the only one hunting for rocks out there 😉
