Pirates Ahoy!

This brief post is a warm salute to that anomaly among pirate captains, Jack Sparrow.  Wallie and I saw the new film and we simply do not know where all those bad reviews come from! This is, at any rate, a brief sketch with words to that rare fellow what makes pirating a vocation, vacation, and an explosion.

He was not, perhaps, prepossessing: diminutive and small-boned: but there was something striking in his easy, careless posture as he leaned at the ship’s rail, and there was something of the captain in the way his dark eyes rested on the open sea.

Wallie likes Imps. Wallie is an Imp. Perhaps that’s his trouble.

When Wallie heard about the Daily Prompt from the Daily Postwriting nonstop without thinking for ten minutes—he was naturally very excited. He thinks he is a better writer than he is and is always eager to show off.

The problem is, he only writes in Impish.
