But what about the rum?
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.
